New issue on

GitHub project “this-week”


IndieWeb newsletter should treat pages edited from a redirect to actual content as new pages

on (ttk.me b/54x1) using BBEdit

The IndieWeb This Week newsletter’s "New Wiki Pages" section, e.g. 2020-01-31 New Wiki Pages should also include pages that are not literally new in MediaWiki terms, but were a redirect page, and during the the week before the newsletter were edited to no longer redirect, and have their own content instead.

Currently in order to make a redirect page that’s been converted to a content page show up in the "New Wiki Pages" section, you have to delete the redirect page, and then recreate it with the new content. For example I did this today with the local first page. Ideally there would be no need to take that extra step of deleting the redirect page first.
