: That is perfect, you are a genius. That problem has always bugged me, and I know I complained about it before, but was never clever enough to imagine a solution like that. I wish I could have thought of it! If you need help or want to divide up the labor just let me know how I can help. {{User:Blue Rook/Sig}} 06:19, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

: Well, using redirects would partly defeat the purpose, because the current page is '''bolded''' within the template when you're viewing it on that page. I.e., on the page for [[David Palmer]] you would scroll down to the template and see his name bolded on the template, showing where he fit in the chronology. It's annoying, but there doesn't seem to be an official workaround yet (from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help_talk:What_links_here#Question._How_do_we_hide_excessive_linkage.3F]). There is the "Hide transclusions" filter on What Links Here, but it appears to do absolutely nothing. I feel like it's not enough of a problem to be worth the effort your solution would involve, and in any case it's possible MediaWiki might end up fixing it. --[[User:Pyramidhead|Pyramidhead]] ([[User talk:Pyramidhead|talk]]) 05:00, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

::I wouldn't say that the purpose of navigation templates is to show the current page as bolded, it's just to stop pages linking to themselves which could be slightly confusing, but I think that is a small compromise to give in to as, currently, these templates defeat the ''entire'' purpose of whatlinkshere--[[user:Acer4666|Acer4666]] ([[User talk:Acer4666|talk]]) 14:37, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
