Unsolved bug[edit]

  • Bug 22863 - Redirect Fixer moved an unrelated page

Capmo (talk) 17:15, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

How does it conflict with page move vandalism?[edit]

Please explain. PeachBush (talk) 02:53, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Just guessing here, but if a bad guy moves a page that has many incoming links that are re-directs, then having the redirects changed to the new page title automatically would mean you have to not only revert the single point of vandalism, but all the changed redirects as well.

What does it do to fix?[edit]

When you say "Fix double redirects after a page move", what does it do to fix? Does it just change redirects linking to the moved-from page to link to the moved-to page instead? Tenbergen (talk) 20:30, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
