#25763 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Have internal linking use the new relevance ordering

Matt mentioned to me that his original thought for #7394 was actually for it to improve internal linking, not even the frontend search. Turns out after all that, the internal linking dialog specifies an explicit ORDER BY, thus excluding it from ordering based on the relevance of the title.

We were going to drop this into 3.7.1 but I forgot about it. If we have a need for a 3.7.2, it'd be a nice little easter egg.

Are we still planning on back-porting this to a 3.7.2? It's in 3.8

  • Keywords fixed-major removed
  • Milestone changed from 3.7.2 to 3.8
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

If we had done a 3.7.2, this would have been nice to sneak in. But, nope. Closing for 3.8.

We still *could* do a 3.7.2 (and likely will, with a subsequent security issue), but it's past time to sneak in little things like this.
