I learned that hard #redirect does not support templates, magic words or being wrapped inside conditionals. I’d find any of those features useful in my own wiki, so my questions are:
- Are the limitations based on technical difficulties of implementation, or are they design decisions based on security implications?
- Would it be possible to implement support for said features in an extension, or better yet, are there known extensions to do this?
The wiki that I’m running is limited to my own personal use, so I wouldn’t have to worry about security implications for multiuser MW installations.
