What happens[edit]

I notice that the IsIn Breadcrumb navigation does not display on redirected pages. See en:UTP for an example. Is there any way to overcome this, short of putting IsIn on all the redirected pages too? -- Huttite 17:31, 31 Dec 2005 (EST)

The breadcrumb navigation goes in the same "slot" in the Mediawiki skin as the "Redirected from X" section. I'll take some time to make this work better. --Evan 20:45, 31 Dec 2005 (EST)
Content of en:UTP is #REDIRECT [[:en:Pattaya#U-Tapao]] - but the #U-Tapao part doesn't work (unlike en:Pattaya#U-Tapao) - could that be fixed?

Example I ( Pashley) found is redirect to Shangrila from former name Zhongdian. On en:Yunnan page you have a link to "en:Shangrila (formerly Zhongdian)". Use that and you see bread crumbs. But on en:Kunming page, under bus routes, they list en:Zhongdian. I did not want to just change that to "Shangrila"; for all I know the signs in the bus station use the old name. So I made it redirect. Use that link and you get no crumbs.

Copied from en:Pub by Ryan:

Umea redirects to Umeå. If you follow the link for Umea, the first line of text after the title is "(Redirected from Umea)," but on Umeå, it's "Scandinavia : Sweden : Norrland : Umeå." Shouldn't this line also be present after following a redirect? Philbert2.71828 15:37, 7 June 2006 (EDT)

  • You might argue that it "should" be there, but this is how it's designed to work. :) What's happening is that the "redirected" message takes over the on-screen slot that the breadcrumbs otherwise would use. - Todd VerBeek 18:01, 7 June 2006 (EDT)
I'd like to revisit this. I can't believe there isn't an easy solution... like moving one of them down a "slot" or appending the redirect message to the crumbs. Has it been bug reported? OldPine 16:01, 29 July 2006 (EDT)
