CV redirects broken?
Hi! I think this is my first contribution… I've noticed a number of namespace-less redirects currently appear to redirect to the wrong version. For instance, at least on my end, the pages Notes currently redirects to v0.34:Note, despite the fact that directly viewing the former page displays a redirect to the DF2014 namespace, accomplished by using this CategoryVersion template. I can't reproduce it in every non namespace redirect though, strangely enough. Henges (talk) 10:50, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
- The wiki software handles double redirects poorly. The result of the chain of redirects is cached somewhere, leading to incorrect redirects when the chain is later changed. This is a perennial problem with the way the wiki implements old versions; see Dwarf_Fortress_Wiki_talk:Versions#Reorganizing_versions for my suggested fix.--Loci (talk) 23:01, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
- You're confusing the cv namespace (current version, an alias to DF2014) with this template, which is unrelated. The good news is that we are working on a MediaWiki upgrade again, and I think I've identified at least one cause of double redirects breaking, and it might be possible to patch. —Lethosor (talk) 04:47, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
