Description

Miraheze wiki URL:genshinimpact.miraheze.org

Following a discussion on Discord, I would like to add https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RemoveRedlinks to Special:ManageWiki. Fandom had done something similar for SEO reasons once, and it appeared to benefit them (see User:Collei/Improving a wiki's SEO for evidence of this). I also believe that others may find this useful in general.

Please consider implementing this extension. Thank you!

Event Timeline

seems very basic and probably wouldn't take more than a few minutes maximum to review. @Universal_Omega think you could have a quick look?

Approved. It isn't super maintained, but is simple enough to approve it, even if it is experimental. Though no guarantees it will work for all future versions of MediaWiki, since it's experimental and not super maintained. Nonetheless approved.

Will install after the 1.39 upgrade.

Extension installed and testing on betawiki, but doesn't seem to work for the moment.

The extension only removes links to non-existing userpages, not links to non-existent pages in general. I also think you have to log-out to see the extension in action (https://github.com/marohh/mediawikiRemoveRedlinks/blob/7f54a689b2e00c2a5bd8e498f6465171eedf10fd/includes/Hooks.php#L29).

Nevermind the above, I'm wrong.

I don't see it on betawiki's Special:Version.
