"Suppress redirect" checkbox on Special:MovePage should not just disappear if ContentHandler doesn't support redirects
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When moving a page whose content doesn't support redirects like JavaScript pages, there is no suppress redirect checkbox, it just happens automatically.

This can be confusing, especially when the wiki has overridden the move message to indicate that there will be such a checkbox.

I'd rather see a ticked checkbox which is disabled.
