Inaccurate links from old versions of articles on
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: tim.ivorson

To reproduce:
go to a Wikipedia article on
go to page history
follow any link from a time to the article as of that time
follow the link called "the current version" preceding the article content

Actual result:[Title] is displayed, which is a hybrid of Wikimedia's HTTPS-style and HTTP-style URLs. The page says "Wiki does not exist."

Expected result:
Access the current HTTPS version of the article, with a URL of the form[lowest level subdomain]]/wiki/[title] rather than[title]

Example expected results: should link to instead of should link to instead of

This affects Wikipedia, but not Wikibooks. I don't know whether this problem is specific to Wikimedia wikis. I couldn't access another Media Wiki site by HTTPS.

Version: unspecified
Severity: minor

Above issues no longer seem to be at issue.

The bit in comment 2 _might_ be something to do with FlaggedRevs; the notification message mentioned above no longer shows there, so can't tell if it's current. (If it is still to be found, please do open a new bug!)
