Wikimedia is effed up then. It really makes no sense to me. When you click the redirected page link at the top, then click the big link from the redirect page, it takes you to the properly named page with anchor. This is a design flaw.

IMO, I do not like the way the redirect works because it uses the redirect page name as the pagename#pagename. For example, searching for "parking lots" redirects https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Parking_lots#Parking_Lots when it really should be redirecting to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Best_map_edi ... rking_Lots.

REDIRECT to page section

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Wed Sep 11, 2013 3:53 am

Do redirects to page sections not work as expected? I can't get "bowtie" to redirect to anything but the page top. The URL doesn't reflect what I'd expect either, but I guess some recent wikimedia update changed the way redirects work...

Any suggestions?
