"Add links" in the sidebar not longer available on Commons to connect categories with Wikidata items
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Problem:
Quickly adding interwiki links from Commons pages is currently not available, if no link has been set in Wikidata yet.
Steps:

  1. Go to: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Chrysler_Pacifica_(CS)
  2. find "Add links" button missing in the sidebar (see screenshot F31839910)

Desired outcome:

  1. Go to: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Chrysler_Pacifica_(CS)
  2. click on "Add links" button
  3. see "Link with page" dialog box (see screenshot F31841525; it is still working as expected on en and de.wikipedias)

Once a page is linked from Wikidata everything appears fine and links can be edited (see screenshot F31839906).

Any ideas?

  • a full link to a web address where the issue can be seen.

This link in the sidebar is missing. Since the last deployment? I am unsure but I am miss it too.

There are no steps to reproduce. Because the link is missing.
