SMW not tracking redirects118:39, 26 February 2013


The article has a couple of references to Special:Ask, which apparently does not exist. Could some expert please fix it somehow?

Oops - now I see what the real problem is: the links are to Special page "Ask". I would fix it myself if I could see how to edit the article.

There is not easy/fast fix for this otherwise I would have done it already. The database of this wiki is more or less in a state of mess. Anyhow thanks for caring and reporting.

SMW not tracking redirects

I have a few pages that I recently renamed (updating all of the redirects), and ever since that time none of their redirects have been appearing in {{#ask}} queries based on their pagenames. For example, I have a page that I renamed from Infliximab to PF-06438179, and it has 26 redirects. Before, a template on the page with a query of the form

The part "..." of the query was not understood.</br>Results might not be as expected.

listed 53 pages, but ever since the move it only lists the 6 that direct-link to the page (ignoring the 47 that link to redirects).

  • I've performed dummy-edits on all of the redirects multiple times to try to refresh the index
  • I've performed dummy-edits on the page and the template to try to refresh the {{#ask}} function
  • I've performed dummy-edits on a few of the pages linking to redirects to try to refresh the semantic tags
  • I've completed a data repair cycle via the SMW admin panel
  • I've had my sysadmin run refreshLinks.php

None of these has corrected the problem. How do I make SMW rediscover these redirects? Thanks!
