Special:WhatLinksHere: "previous" link only allows to go back once
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Description:
On Special:WhatLinksHere the "previous X" pagination link is broken, it only allows you to get back once.

Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere/Main_Page&from=19725&back=15586
The "previous" link on this page leads to https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere/Main_Page&from=15586&back=15586

Apparently it simply uses the "back" parameter as the new from, but isn't able to backtrack any further; you can thus only get back one page, not more.

I've tried this on an old 1.15 so I'm assuming this never worked as intended.

I'm sorry. I thought that the task priority determines depending on the significance of the issue. I can't work on this task cause I'm not a MW developer.
