Systemd drop-in snippets

I noticed you are working on a page about systemd drop-in snippets. There's already a section for that on the systemd page. It begins at Systemd#Editing_provided_units, and that's where we've been linking for that topic. Rdeckard (talk) 12:42, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Yes, well the idea was to just have an entry to simply look up the term and keep the article succinct. Now one cannot click on the term drop-in snippet anymore in order to look it up. You think that is better? Y guy (talk) 12:47, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
I think you should just do something like this [[Systemd#Editing_provided_units|drop-in snippet]] which results in this (links to current page): drop-in snippet. No need to create a new page. We can also create a redirect for the term "drop-in snippet" to go to Systemd#Editing_provided_units. Rdeckard (talk) 12:52, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
made the redirect now Y guy (talk) 12:53, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
I think the redirect should go to Systemd#Editing_provided_units, since that is the beginning of that section and is what other articles are already linking to when using the phrase "drop-in snippet".

Thanks. All the other content can be removed from the redirect page, since it will never be seen. I'll close this out. Feel free to re-open if there is more discussion. Thanks again. Rdeckard (talk) 13:02, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
It was done already - still now there is no "what links here" anymore for drop-in snippet - I don't quite see the merit of that. Never mind.
So now simply putting double brackets around the special term drop-in snippet does not work. Now that is progress... ;-) Y guy (talk) 13:05, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
In what way does it not work? You might be experiencing a MediaWiki bug, if it is only redirecting to the systemd page and not the correct section. This will hopefully be corrected soon. - Rdeckard (talk) 13:55, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
OIC - well I have to correct the statement: putting double brackets around the special term drop-in snippet does not work in Qupzilla, even with emptied cache. That linking does - however - work flawlessly in firefox. Thx for the hint. Topic kinda closed now.Y guy (talk) 14:02, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
