Next and previous revision links hidden on old-revision view of redirect text
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: hirsch.heisseich

If you go in an article which once was a redirect page, for example this oldid, on top of
the page you are able to follow the revisions (Older revision | Newer revision).
But if someone has made a redirect, the revision links (inlusive the date)
If you click on the ’Newer revision’ link in my example you are on a redirect page.
It is a dead end. Instead of the revision links there is the text: ’Redirect
page’. You can not move back- or forward. As you can see in the history the
redirect is not the actual page:
Is it possible to include the regular revision navigation on top instead of the
'redirect' word?

Hallo baumanns!

Confirming that no navigation links are available at
despite the fact that
is very long.

There are some discussions about rendering a redirect as a normal page at
Bug 927: Text in the same line as #redirect not rendered, except for category tags
This would probably also fix the problem with the navigation links.

P.S. The "Component" of this bug relates both to "Redirects" *and* to
"History/Diffs". The actual Bugzilla version does not support this.

*trivial note*
The code for "diff" is not identical with the code for "direction" /
"direction=prev" regarding the rendering of redirects
(is a "reversed" redirect where value of diff < value of oldid)

The only rendering issue is addressed in
Bug 2333: Redirect graphic not shown in preview
