           Summary: Page redirects are not recognized by VisualEditor's
                    link inspector
           Product: VisualEditor
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General
    Classification: Unclassified

1. Edit an article with VisualEditor
2. Select a word for which a redirect exists (not an actual page)
3. Click the "link" icon.


Since a redirect exists, the link inspector shows the option in blue (since the
link is functional). All the better if it is shown in italics, just like
redirects are shown by MediaWiki in lists of pages.


Redirects are ignored by the link inspector. They appear just as red as a
missing string. This creates a lot of extra work having to search the string
manually in another window.
