[Migrated] Bypass redirects
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

It is somewhat important for navboxes (template space) as self-link are bold but only to a page with that exact title (no redirects), see User:Dschwen/HighlightRedirects for an example of some code which utilized the api.php.

It doesn't utilise the bot API, it simply changes page CSS on request to make links to redirects visible, which is not helpful for us.

I was using api.php before the feature was integrated into the software, older version uses ajax to get the redirects.

Removing MediaWiki-API since this doesn't seem to have anything to do with the API beyond just using it. If something is actually needed from the API here, feel free to re-add after clarifying.

Nothing we can do here. This is for API guys if they want to do something.
