Section redirects no longer work
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: happy_melon

Description:
Previously, using a redirect like #REDIRECT[[Foo#Bar]] would redirect to the page Foo, but would also focus on the section "Bar" if it exists. As of some time this morning or yesterday, this no longer works on en.wiki: the page http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Infinitude_of_primes contains the code "#redirect [[prime number#There are infinitely many prime numbers]]", but redirects only to the top of the "prime number" page rather than the specific section. This appears to be the case with many or all section redirects on en.wiki.

CC'ing to Roan because it seems likely this is related to r33133.

I'm pretty sure it is. I gotta go now, but I'll look at this in a few hours.

should be fixed in r33375.

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.
