Steel1943 added a comment to T41395: behavior switch needed to disable links to parent pages from subpages.

If I'm reading this correctly, the issue I see with approaching the problem in that manner, specifically via resolution "(b)", is that it would erroneously disable pages when viewing talk page archive subpages.

I think you misunderstood. The intention of (b) would be to disable the link if an article exists that matches the current, not the target, talk page. In that case, the link to from [[Talk:AC/DC/Archive 1]] to [[Talk:AC/DC]] would not be disabled unless there is also an article called [[AC/DC/Archive 1]], and the link from [[Talk:NASA/Archive 1]] to [[Talk:NASA]] would not be disabled unless there is an article called [[NASA/Archive 1]]. However, the link from [[Talk:AC/DC]] to [[Talk:AC]] would be disabled since the article [[AC/DC]] exists.

Steel1943 added a comment to T41395: behavior switch needed to disable links to parent pages from subpages.

That brings up perhaps the most important use case: the talk page of a mainspace article with a slash in it, such as [[Talk:AC/DC]], [[Talk:n/a]], [[Talk:R/K selection theory]], [[Talk:9/11 Commission Report]], [[Talk:S/PDIF]], etc.

A more general fix would be to automatically disable it for pages in a talk namespace when (a) the corresponding content namespace has subpages disabled and (b) a page with a matching title in the corresponding content namespace exists.

Pretty sure this is resolved now...

Steel1943 added a comment to T85428: Title blacklist intermittently failing, allowing users to edit things they shouldn't be able to.

Looks like the software's ability to enforce the title blacklist on enwiki is down again. Are there any updates on completing the fix?
