(I also posted this at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:API:Query_-_Lists
I see that the backlinks query can already filter results depending if a
backlink is a redirect or not (with blfiterredir) but I don't see a way
to see in the result if backlinks are actually redirect or not. Could it
be added to the API ?
I need to retrieve all backlinks (recursively through redirects), so
currently I call recursively the backlinks query and the redirect query.
Retrieving the 2 informations in one query would be very useful for me
to speed up requests ;)
I quickly looked at the code of the backlinks query and it seems simple
to do (I may be overlooking things because I don't know how the API is
* In run(), call $this->addField('page_is_redirect'); if needed.
* In extractRowInfo(), add something like $vals['redirect'] =
Thanks in advance for any answer :)
