Broken links in D2 Item Displays

  • #1
    Okay basically what I'm talking about is that when your viewing D2 items on the wiki the item displays will show the unique or set item that spawns from that particular item..

    Take the Giant Axe for instance. Underneath the title is supposed to be a link to the unique item Humongous...

    Now both of the links attached to the names take you to their data page on the wiki..
    • Note how on Humongous' data page that the link to the Giant Axe also dosn't work...
    I'm just bringing this up because I'm wondering if this is a concern and how do we go about fixing this if it needs to be fixed

    My personal guess is that it would have to be something to do with the item display template or something to do with redirecting links not existing. With the likely cause of the links not working being the shift of all D2 namespaces having (Diablo II) appended to the end of them.

    Bingo!

    Before we moved the D2 items to use the new item template, many of them linked to their unique/set/normal versions with links like [Humongous]] rather than [Humongous (Diablo II]] (you can see that humongous redirects you to the D2 unique axes page). Withthe move, to conform to the later added wiki standards of separating all older game titles with a game suffix, this created some red linkds. So this is just a matter of the redirects not existing. Easy but tiresome process to fix :)
