[duplicated] Queries should recognise aliases

If you have a page [[Clark Kent]] with alias:: Superman, a /query Superman won’t turn up mentions of Clark Kent. Aliases should be recognised by queries.

I have a hard time understanding this needs to be a feature request. In my book, this is a bug since by definition one should be able to use an alias in place of the original title. Of course, also a query should work respectively. Still, I’ll upvote of course!


I wonder if this is on the radar of the devs.
I totally agree it is an issue, and it needs to be fixed asap, since the alias is very useful in queries and otherwise indeed.

It’s on radar. But the current requests are too spreading.

Also, as using text-based storage, alias is not that solid. Adding this support would be hard and dangerous. We need to do that carefully, and in one shot.

thanks for the feedback.
indeed, maybe going to database storage will allow to make it more stable?
