Hi Lucie,

Thank you for implementing this. I have some more suggestions.

When I go to this article:


I can't go back the Wikidata entry.
I also can't jump to this article from the Wikidata entry on wikidata.org.
And I'm not made aware of these placeholder articles in 4 extra languages on the Swedish and Cebuano Wikipedias.

This also doesn't work:

But that would have been very surprising if it had. Still, how does one 'land' on these placeholder articles?

The only way I found was by adding the q-number after this url:

But that's not very straightforward/intuitive.

Working on that one! It needs some discussion of what to prefill but I'll look into that in the next days and weeks.

The inclusion in the search results is indeed not working at the moment btw- Marius is already working on enabling the feature.

Thank you everyone for your feedback already!
I couldn't be happier to be at this point :)
