[mediawiki.feedback.js] Feedback should follow redirect
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I tried to edit MediaWiki:Visualeditor-feedback-link on zhwp but it doesn't affect the feedback target page at all. Is that even the correct message to change?

I then turn the target page into a redirect, but feedback are still sent to that page without following the redirect.

Yes, that is the correct message; you can set it for all zh-hans or zh-hant projects at [0] and [1] and it will respect it (once the software is updated).

[0] - https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&language=zh-hans&group=ext-visualeditor
[1] - https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&language=zh-hant&group=ext-visualeditor

that page without following the redirect.

You're right; this is a bug in the feedback tool, which is part of MediaWiki core. Moving the bug there.
