Am I right in thinking the tool is working in Tool Labs? If so, I would ask Nosy to create a redirect as erwin85's toolserver account has expired anyway...

(In reply to Silke Meyer (WMDE) from comment #1)

Am I right in thinking the tool is working in Tool Labs?

No, it's not working, even without recursion: "Fatal Error: Database query failed."

Magnus, can we redirect the users to bawolff's Special:RandomInCategrory on the target wiki where &d=0 ?

Raising priority because this is in the top 15 or so most visited non-migrated tools.

Now it is, fix was simple, use the correct database, same as with related_changes. Only this one is also not working with commons, one I don't understand.

When I try it now, it also seems to work for commons. How exactly can I see what isn't working?

What are you exactly filling in? If I choose commons, and either leave the box before that empty or fill in commons as well, and choose some category (I picked windmills), I get database errors.

Can you pick as action 'show link to' and provide that link?

I picked project = commons, all namespaces, categories = wildmills, include subcategories = yes, depth = 0, I am redirected to either a windmill or a category of windmills.

ahh, you leave family (the dropdown box) to wikipedia. Strange that works, I will debug a bit more later. Not sure if I manage quickly, otherwise it is for the hackathon at wikimania.

I am creating a replacement tools at

Welcome site and instruction still missing but redirecting to a radom page of the whole subtree already works using url[dbname]/[category]


This tools is using redis as cache and will also work if labs database is down.

It's been migrated [1], and appears to work.

However, the "simple" version [2], linked from the introductory text of the normal version, doesn't work.


Commons is working now as well.

Had a quick look at 'simple', changed the database calls there as well, but that was not enough, need more investigations.

I tried today, and the simple version is working now as well. Not sure if something changed, but closing off this one.
