Something strange I noticed
 
Sorry for starting yet another topic but I wanted to completely redo the Day of Defeat site:

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Day_of_defeat

and I noticed something very strange.

Steps to reproduce:

- Go to the Link above

- Press the discussion tab (you will notice that the game goes to the "Day of Defeat: Source" discussion page)

- press the page tab

- you will land on the Day of Defeat: Source website, NOT on the Day of Defeat



Does anybody know why?

There should be two seperate pages for:

Day of Defeat (and Discussion)

Day of Defeat: Source (and Discussion)


Any way to fix this?

Those two games are completely seperate (like Half Life 1 and 2) so the pages should also be treated like this.

I am not good enough to fix this myself sorry.

Any help greatly appreciated as I really want to get the Day of Defeat site done in the next few days (I have all the material already prepared and ready for upload).

The reason for this is that when the "Day of Defeat: Source" page was created it was incorrectly named simply "Day of Defeat". This was then moved to the correct title and redirects were left behind on the previous main and talk pages to the new pages. When someone recently made the original page this replaced the redirect on the "Day of Defeat" page, but as they didn't do anything to the talk page this stayed as a redirect to the Source one. In this case, when you clicked on the talk tab from the "Day of Defeat" page, after it took you to the Source talk page you would have seen (Redirected from Talk: Day of Defeat) at the top of the page. You can click on this to take you to the redirect and blank it, which is what I did to fix it.
