Bug with broken[edit]

Please find my bug below: my bot is administrator on fr.b (I could suppress a page manually with its account), and when I launch "redirect.py double" it works perfectly.

However, with "both" or "broken", no deletion is possible: he can see the broken redirections list, but when I enter "y" or launch the script "-always" it passes to the next entry without any page suppression.

After an SVN update it works. JackPotte 15:56, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Bug with double[edit]

On this dictionary the bot couldn't find the destination page, probably because of the õ and/or ü into its name. JackPotte 04:20, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

The file i18n.py is existing in the folder pywikibot, that fine. Thx a lot! --Plasmarelais 10:38, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Could you please check the folders update, for example with Tortoise in Windows (after the installation right click on the pywikipedia directory and SVN Update...)? JackPotte 12:53, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

OK; I downloaded the Tortoise, installed, right click on the pywikipedia folder. It works! Thank you veryvery much, but I do not really know, what the turtle did? Just an update of the framework? I had the latest version yesterday o_O But thanks! --Plasmarelais 11:59, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

$wgCapitalLinks = false;[edit]

In my setting, I had $wgCapitalLinks = false; and about a hundred double redirection from something like "Article abc" to "Page abc" to "abc". How to make the redirect.py case sensitive, or if I can't do that, what code should I change so that I can fix those double redirects? Bennylin 14:15, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Cannot fix or delete the broken redirect[edit]

Hello, when I'm trying to run this command on broken redirects, it can't delete them. I'm running it on simpsonswiki.com. It keeps coming up with the message "Cannot fix or delete the broken redirect". I have sysop powers and have given my bot these powers in the user-config and I can run delete.py okay so that's not the problem. I just can't figure out why it won't let me do this. Can anyone help? Thanks, Solar Dragon (talk) 17:28, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

(I should probably note that I am running core. I am unsure whether anything would be different if you are running compat.)
As far as I can tell, this is an issue with the wording on the error message being unclear. When it says that it can't delete the redirects, it actually means that it isn't being allowed to delete the redirects due to missing the -delete argument (which I just added a note about on the script page). So, if you are still having this problem, simply adding said argument to the script call should fix it. Oscuritaforze (talk) 05:42, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Actually can't fix or delete broken redirect[edit]

Hiya, I can't seem to get this script to recognise my bot is a sysop. When I run the script with the -delete option, the "self.site.logged_in(sysop=True)" seems to return false, as far as I can tell. And if I bypass that, it simply complains that it can't delete pages. My bot can do it manually when I'm logged in. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this from hereon in. --209.93.123.243 16:24, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, got assistance from the IRC channel. Failed to set a sysop account in user config properly. --SgtLion (talk) 16:35, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
