Another note in the Wikimedia page on Section linking states:

Re: REDIRECT to page section

I am going to post some notes from my search on this problem and have the Waze back-end team review here.

I found this https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special: ... Wiki/18220 talking about adding a fix for allowing a redirect to a section of a page.

In Wikipedia they can currently redirect to a section on a page, so I know it is possible. Somehow we are missing that feature, patch, fix, etc. I thought it was working maybe 6 months ago, so it is possible with the last update to add the Parser Extensions we might have lost something we need for REDIRECTs.

REDIRECTS work two ways:

1. When typed in the search bar they should go directly to the section noted in the redirect, but I too have noticed they seem to have stopped working in the last few months. I spoke to Jackson on that and was going to write it up for him to send to the Wiki back end guys.

2. When linked from inside another page, they seem to work fine, but I think it may be looking at the actual location, not the redirect.

Does this match your experience?

EDIT: both of the above situations are currently acting the same as #1.
