my bot checked ru:Домашних духов обманув, душа Цянь-нюй расстаётся с телом on ru-WP for interwiki links and found an invalid link to zh-WP and removed it. But this link is valid as you can see. Why does this happen?

Best regards,

It has to do with the zh-traditional/zh-simplified distinction. In normal MediaWiki usage, both the simplified and the traditional orthography of Chinese work, but the bot uses \[\[Special:Export\]\], which only works for simplified Chinese.

If you change the link from \[\[zh:倩女离魂\]\] to \[\[zh:倩女離魂\]\], you still go to the same page, but the link will work for the bot as well.

Thanks. But there should be a general solution for this. Is it a MediaWiki bug or should the bot know about all distinctions made on WP-Projects?

  • summary: "[[zh:????]] does not exist" but is does! --> [[Special:Export]] not retrieving zh-traditional titles

The same happens with kyrillic letters on sr-wiki \(\#2484627\)

Compat problem. Use core branch instead.
