Sometimes an existing redirect is not found in the search indexes, so VE and other tools assume it doesn't exist
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

In itwiki we had complaints because the link editor sometimes displays redirects page as missing pages.

Try doing this:

  • Open https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utente:Elitre_(WMF)/Pagina_delle_prove_VE
  • Edit it with VisualEditor
  • If you write "USA" and then try to create a wl it displays "Stati Uniti d'America" as the first choice and the redirect "USA" as the second choice
  • If you write "Faringe" and then try to create a wl to "Cartilagine cricoidea" (which redirects to "Cartilagine cricoide") the wanted page is listed as a missing page and the target page of the "Cartilagine cricoidea" redirect is in blue.
  • Select the red link and the word in text appears as a red link
  • Save the page and the text is now blue
