Misleading message about redirect

Template:Moved from If you put {{Edit protected|MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log}} on MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist, the box begins with "It is requested that an edit be made to the fully protected redirect at MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log.". Why "redirect", when MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log isn't? See Template:Oldid. --Redrose64 (talk) 18:54, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:Ping The issue is that when p._main{page='MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist/log'} is called, checkRedirects instead checks to see if MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist/log is a redirect (lines 208-211). I'm not sure what the logic behind doing that that way is. Thoughts? Jackmcbarn (talk) 19:16, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Yep, that's a bug in the module. It should use the current page rather than the subject page if talk pages are allowed, but at the moment it only checks, not args.defaultns. I'll have a think about how best to fix this. (Also, your ping didn't work - not sure why.) — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 04:12, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Now fixed. I also uncovered a nasty bug that was introduced by the recent changes to Module:Namespace detect - this module was trying to use the # operator with the mappings table, which didn't work after it was switched to load using mw.loadData. I also split out the config data to Module:Pagetype/config, loaded using mw.loadData. And I made some beautification fixes too. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 06:01, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
I didn't get a ping either. It might be because it was a page creation? --Redrose64 (talk) 10:18, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Template:Ping Broken in the opposite way now. [1] says talk page instead of module. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:05, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Bleh. That was a bug I introduced to Module:Namespace detect this morning trying to fix an unrelated issue. That's now fixed as well. And with that, I think I shall call it a night. If you notice other similar problems, purging should fix it. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 17:13, 5 April 2014 (UTC)


I don't think this module identifies pages in the draft namespace. Please could this be added? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:40, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

You could either use {{pagetype|draft=true}} or you could edit the cfg.defaultNamespaces section of Module:Pagetype/config. -- WOSlinker (talk) 11:56, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Template:Ping Drafts are detected fine - they are one of the extended namespaces. See Module:Pagetype#Default namespace sets for a quick look at what is in what set. And if you think drafts should be in the default set instead of just the extended set, we can make the change in the module config, as WOSlinker said. (We should probably get consensus for that first, though.) — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 13:13, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes well, perhaps "draft" should be in that set. Also I'm surprised that "file" is not there. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:51, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Hmm I see "file" is there, but not in the "media" row so I'm a bit confused by that. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:53, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Template:Ping That's because when you click a link to a media namespace page, you're not going to a wiki page, but you're viewing the file directly. For example: Media:Example.svg. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 14:00, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Interesting, I didn't know that! In the meantime I've used |draft=yes on Template:Importance mask so it works as intended. Cheers all — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:29, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
