query-continue problem with list=alllinks
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: russblau

The URL in this report returns 10 links and the following query-continue element:


<alllinks alfrom="Wiki" />


This is the ''same'' alfrom parameter as in the original query. If you then continue the query using this parameter, you get the same 10 links again (and, if you are an automated program, you go into an infinite loop).

Severity: normal
URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=alllinks&allimit=10&alfrom=Wiki&alnamespace=0&alprop=title|ids

That's because there are a lot of links to [[Wiki]] (over 500, in fact). I added the alcontinue parameter in r34392 which adds the page ID, uniquely identifying each link.
