New syntax and tweaks[edit]

The syntax of MediaWiki:Movepage-moved is different from MediaWiki:Pagemovedtext, which it replaced. The code below is adjusted for the new syntax, and also uses normal sentence grammar, explains why double-redirects need to be fixed, replaces the alternating contrasting emphasis with a uniformly emphasized to-do list, and removes a "click this link" label (see W3C: HTML Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0). A bug that prevents passing message variables (like $3) to ParserFunctions and magic words is circumvented with {{MediaWiki move comments subpage}} (see documentation).

The page "$1" was moved to "$2".

* '''Please [[Special:Whatlinkshere/$3|check]] for double-redirects, and fix them if necessary.''' A redirect to a redirect does not work.

Based on m:Migration_to_the_new_preprocessor I think this might break, but i'm unsure. Bawolff 19:57, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't think so; the code is pretty straightforward. What in particular do you think will fail? Pathoschild 19:39, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

list double redirects[edit]

some of the spans and divs on this page work in conjunction with MediaWiki:Common.js/Special:MovePage to provide a list of double redirects. this is a temporary solution until such functionality is provided by mediawiki itself. (if new js breaks anything - yell at bawolff) Bawolff 23:01, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Please check for any double redirects, and fix them — a redirect to a redirect doesn't work.

You can fix any redirects with #REDIRECT [[$4]].

You must move the "Comments" page to reflect the new title.

A redirect has been created.

A redirect has been suppressed.

It'll look somewhat like this; possible problems arise when one moves a page over an existing one, as the unaltered deletion acknowledgement would be placed at the top of it. However, I envision that, in the future, we can change most acknowlegements to this pretty style, meaning that it'll just stack on top. Dendodge has concerns about the big X in the suppression notice: feel free to peruse for some new ones. — μchip08 17:45, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
