[regression] Localized redirects do not work after a page move
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: claymore.ws

After a page move localized redirects (#перенаправление in this case) don't trigger the actual redirect. Changing the redirect to the original (#REDIRECT) fixes the problem. Not ever page move causes the problem, I haven't been able to find which ones do.

Possibly a regression from the redirect changes? Siebrand had mentioned something similar iirc.

Has also happened in fiwiki, marking as regression.

depends on bug 17300, which was fixed in r46502 -- turns out this has nothing to do with localized redirects, but rather with the redirect table not being properly updated on pagemoves. Editing the page caused the redirect table to properly update, which is why changing the text to #REDIRECT fixed it (If you just changed some whitespace it would have the exact same effect of fixing it).

These "bad" redirects will still exist after the update, but once they are edited or re-moved (easiest thing to do would be to either add or remove the space before the link opening), they will function properly

Not marking as FIXED until some other people can verify that revisions of mediawiki after r46502 do not have this issue.
