What has happened with the redirect function? They now seem to work "silently", i.e. they forward to the target page without providing a link along the lines of "redirected from ..." This makes it hard to access the redirect page itself, and also makes it harder to realise when a link we have followed points to a redirect (which should usually be corrected). Is this something done on this wiki, or is it something Wikia has done? Either way, I don't like it. Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 19:56, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

I know, I noticed that too. I put it on the Yew Grove here, but Derilith says that they work for him. They don't for us. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:09, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
They still work the original way for me, both at home and at work. Seems it could be something on your side then. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 20:19, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, mine still works too. Christine 20:27, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I've got it. I thought maybe it was something in the preferences, but it's not. You have to allow scripts running from yui.yahooapis.com - I usually don't allow third-party scripts to run, as they are often ads or trackers (thank God for Firefox's NoScript add-on). Not sure why Wikia is running stuff from Yahoo!, but they have some pertinent information on YUI: Configuration and Hosting - YUI stands for Yahoo! User Interface Library, apparently.
