prop=links not include links from transcluded templates
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Links to page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost retrieved from the API using http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&prop=links&titles=Lost&pllimit=max gives those from the transcluded templates.. ie

<pl ns="0" title="Wiktionary" />
<pl ns="4" title="Wikipedia:Disambiguation" />

Is it possible to add an option (or even, is there a way round this) to make it not include those from transcluded templates?

Cheers

Sam

Ok, cheers Bryan..

And i dont think its worth on AWB's part to go getting the article text, and then getting all the links
