Wikilinks with different capitalization?Edit

Will wikilinks be case-insensitive as well? E.g. would [[PiNK FLoyD]] produce a blue link to Pink Floyd? This is kinda important, because it affects pages that are currently linked to via a redirect with the same case-folded title (though you could resolve these links before deleting the redirect).

What is more critical: when renaming a page while only changing case, you obviously can't leave a redirect behind, so unless wikilinks were made case-insensitive as well, the link to that page would be broken. — 6×9 (Talk) 07:22, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, great point. Added to the list.

  1. We need to make sure that IFEXISTS also works with different capitalizations.
  2. Do you think it's sensible to extend this rule into the File namespace, too?

Good catch on IFEXISTS.
By default, I would assume that I'd just apply this to all namespaces since I can't think of a reason not to. It seems like it would be simpler to keep track of that way if the whole wiki followed the same rules. Seem reasonable?
