A couple of more use cases: I checked the Wikipedia App running on iPhone and on an Android Tablet. The App does not appear to have this issue. Neither does Safari running on an iPhone when I access the mobile site.

Hmmm.... It's only my latest versions of the draft that have the demo link to a section

@Jdlrobson - What I see at your link is an earlier draft of the Draft. The only thing I can figure is that User:XOR'easter and you must have been working at the same time or something.

@Jdlrobson - On June 11, User:XOR'easter replaced the draft version of with a redirect to the "real" version. I've just replaced the redirect with the demo draft and will put a note on User:XOR'easter's talk page to please not redirect again. I hope that you weren't trying to reproduce the bug after the draft had been redirected. :-(

@Jdlrobson - can you give me a URL so that I can try "to replicate the issue in that user page?"

Prokaryotic_Caspase_Homolog added a comment to T196217: "Usage" section of File pages on Commons should also list when the file is referenced (not: embedded) on another wiki page.

Certain policies and procedures in place require accurate tracking of image usage.

  1. For example, non-free images added according to "fair use" policy are required to be deleted if they are not actually used by any article. Deleting an image that seemingly is not being used by any Wikipedia article but which is actually in use would result in a red link.
  2. These images are used as resources by the articles referencing them, but the editors of those articles for whatever reason decided that a full transclusion of the images themselves was not appropriate. For example, the image of the Sun and the image of the solar spectrum are used by both https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fizeau%E2%80%93Foucault_apparatus on the English Wikipedia and by https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experimento_de_Fizeau_y_Foucault on the Spanish Wikipedia. The Spanish article is 98% a direct translation of the English article. These images represent important historical background material, but are otherwise not directly relevant to the articles' subjects. However, the Commons description lists only the article's usage on the Spanish Wikipedia. The distinction between the Spanish and English articles' usage of the images appears to be minimal to me. Note that the Spanish article renders the images at very small scale, so as not to be distracting to the main thrust of the article.
  3. Use of "coloned-out" references to images is common on talk pages, less common on main space pages. Perhaps this behavior is not actually a bug, but it does represent unexpected behavior. You could consider my report to be a feature request.

You're welcome! With approximately 40 percent of all Wikipedia users accessing via the mobile web, I have to be extremely careful that everything I do makes sense on multiple platforms. There are lots of places where I would like to put a "See also" reference to one or another section of this article, but I can't do so if the link sends practically all iPhone users and some unknown percentage of Android users into the boonies.

The appetize.io web site also allows a developer to confirm the ability to get Android to misbehave without having to download and install Genymotion and the virtual box. Here, I am demo'ing Nexus 5 on Android 7.1 using the default Chrome browser. The sequence I use here is slightly different from the sequence that I use for the iPhone.

I tested out several so-called iOS "emulators," which are all actually iOS simulators. Apparently Apple's terms of service prohibit true emulators executing iOS within a virtual environment on Windows. However, I have found an online site that appears to offer a true emulator: appetize.io

The same protocol described above which messes up the Edge browser also goofs up Internet Explorer on the desktop.

I can reproduce the problem on the desktop using the Edge browser. Chrome and Firefox appear to be immune to the issue.

I have found a sequence of actions that reliably reproduces the bug on a Genymotion emulator. Unlike the iPhone, where the bug shows up immediately, you have to work a bit to make the bug show up on an Android. But the bug is most definitely definitely there.

One frustrating thing about providing a good "how to reproduce" sequence is that the browser retains a memory of its state that persists even across reboot. At the moment, my iPhone seems to be working perfectly even though I've cleared the Safari cache. Also, everybody who would be working on this problem has a different phone than mine.

I don't own a real Android device, so I downloaded three emulator programs to see how section linking would behave in an emulated android environment. I was unable to reproduce the bug in two of the emulator programs, but Genymotion, which runs an actual Android operating system in a virtual box, gave interesting results.

It took me a long time to find the "Expand all sections" setting. I first thought it might be a Safari setting. Nope. How about a General setting. Nope. Finally I looked at the Wikipedia settings...

The behavior only shows up when the mobile web is accessed on a phone. The mobile web page works perfectly OK on a tablet, and the mobile web page works perfectly OK on a desktop.

That was the solution that I resorted to. It's a kludge solution.

I've tried :, {{quote}}, <blockquote>, etc.
They all have the same issue.
