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.
