Greetings! I am a relatively new MediaWiki extension developer, and I'm
having trouble with getting the MediaWiki API to capture all links coming
into and out of a given wiki page.
I know we can use *action=query&prop=extlinks *to get *external *links from
our wiki page to other (non-wiki) web pages, *action=query&prop=links *to
get internal links from our wiki page *out *to other wiki pages, and
*to get internal links from other wiki pages *into *our wiki page. However,
in the case where a link is *external *but points *to an internal wiki page*,
I can't find the proper API call. These links seem to be falling through
the cracks somehow.
I'm inclined to believe that I'm just missing something simple, especially
because this MediaWiki help page includes "external links to internal
pages" as a category of links:
Can anyone shed light on this issue? Is there an easy way to capture
external links to internal wiki pages through an API call?
