Interwiki language links to non-existent wikisources should redirect to the multilingual wikisource
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This issue has been confused with T34189: An interlanguage link to oldwikisource is required and requires a separate bug. The use of a link to a wikisource language subdomain that does not exist should redirect to the multilingual wikisource via missing.php (

In the past new language subdomains have asked for direct interwiki links (see (T19008: Redirecting from and (T28124: For Wikisource series, please create [be:] interwiki link to point to oldwikisource)). Although creating aliases for language subdomains in active incubation may be a good idea, this bug is intended to deal with links created to valid languages irrespective of whether works exist.

The point of this bug is so that, for example, on hi.wp [[s:Foo]] would link to which would redirect to and on [[hi:Foo]] would create a sidebar link to the same page. AND the same would happen for any other valid language code without a subdomain regardless of whether any works actually existed.
