Mediawiki features

From wikinotes


You can create aliases for pages, that will be automatically redirected.
When renaming a page, you have the option to create one automatically,
otherwise do the following

- create page with desired name
- add the text: '#REDIRECT [[mediapage to redirect to]]'
- save

You can see a list of all redirects Special:ListRedirects. It is not searcheable, unfortunately.

Probably the easiest way to create a redirect is to:

  • search for a page that doesn't exist
  • click create page
  • add the text #REDIRECT [[some page]]
