Interwiki redirect
« on: February 27, 2011, 11:51:07 AM »
Anyone come across a way of doing this?  Redirecting a page via an interwiki link?  See here; apparently it's possible, since it's done here, but I guess they've made some server-side modifications or something.

Assuming you meant to use [[ ]] in the redirect code, no, it doesn't work.  I tried the 'forward' ('local') argument before, as mentioned on the linked talk page, and, as expected, 'trans' doesn't do anything for redirects.

I've seen it done, but shouldn't one use a soft redirect for that anyways?  It's kinda weird to click an in-wiki link and end up elsewhere.


Srsbsns is always lurking (?_?)

It's possible. Set "Foward" to yes or true, for the specific interwiki code and then use the code for the redirect link.

Code: [Select]
#REDIRECT [[code:page name]]


The problem, as talked about in this thread, it fills up the double-redirect list.

Yeah, I made that point on the talk page.  This is also partly out of curiosity; It's not a decided-upon thing that it'll be a redirect, I don't think.

It's possible. Set "Foward" to yes or true, for the specific interwiki code and then use the code for the redirect link.

Code: [Select]
#REDIRECT [[code:page name]]

That's exactly what I was saying I tried in my post replying to a post that seems to have disappeared.  I guess you've lost the context in not having seen that post...

This is true... i am lost. But still trying to be helpful, despite it.....

Also, out of curiosity, did you read the thread i linked?

There's the generic way of creating an external link like you would see in the external links section of Wikipedia.
