[[Special:Recentchangeslinked/nonexistent page]] shows a blue [[nonexistent page]]
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: gangleri


This type of links are not available in the user interface. However archives,
talk pages etc. can still contain such links.

Comparing [[special:Whatlinkshere/nonexistent page]] where [[nonexistent page]]
is red with [[special:Recentchangeslinked/nonexistent page]] shows the
difference in the user interface.

See also section *notes* at

[[foo]] at [[Special:Recentchangeslinked/foo]] should indicate the existence of
the page.

Addressed in SVN trunk, r14063. Changed to redirect back to the title, allowing
the user to create the page (or read the localised "this page doesn't exist"

Please can you exempt populated categories from this? It is useful to see the
recent changes linked to a category regardless of whether the actual category
page has been created.

Agreed; the redirection is pretty unintuitive to me.

I've reverted the prior fix in r20806 and changed to the originally-requested
link-coloring behavior in r20807.
