Is it possible to hide redirect pages from showing in Special:AllPages when linked to in the sidebar? They currently are displayed italicized, which is the default.

    Check the "Hide redirects" checkbox? – Tgr Apr 6 '16 at 11:18
  • @Tgr Yes, thank you. BTW, that was possibly the worst worded question I've ever typed. I just edited the question for proper context. – Paul Apr 6 '16 at 14:57

    The answer is still the same though (well, check the box, submit the form, copy that URL to the sidebar). – Tgr Apr 6 '16 at 17:21
  • @Tgr Again, thanks. I had tried using regular wiki markup to create a link, but that didn't produce the desired results. The format is special to that MediaWiki:Sidebar page. Using ** //example.com/w/index.php?title=Special%3AAllPages&from=&to=&namespace=0&hideredirects=1|All wiki pages did the trick. – Paul Apr 6 '16 at 17:50
  • @Paul can you add that as answer, then, please? – Nemo Jun 15 '16 at 16:21

To make the link to 'All Wiki Pages' in the sidebar display all pages but without redirects, navigate to www.example.com/w/MediaWiki:Sidebar and change:

** Special:AllPages|All Wiki Pages


** //www.example.com/w/index.php?title=Special%3AAllPages&from=&to=&namespace=0&hidered‌​irects=1|All Wiki Pages
