#ifexist does not detect special pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I don't know if this is due to performance reasons, but if you supply a special page argument to #ifexist, it always returns false.

Wikitext to reproduce:

{{#ifexist:Main Page|All is usual.|ROGUE ADMIN! WOOP! WOOP! WOOP}}<br>
{{#ifexist:Special:Allpages|Nothing to see here.|BUG ALERT! WOOP! WOOP! WOOP!}}

Expected:

All is usual.
Nothing to see here.

Actual:

All is usual.
BUG ALERT! WOOP! WOOP! WOOP!

See [[testwiki:User:MER-C/Sandbox]] for the actual results.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
