WeRelate:Suggestions/Source pinpoint cites broken

This discussion brought to my attention that the format for internal source pincites at some point changed from [[#S1|S1]] to the hard to remember and as far as I can tell never used [[#_note-S1|S1]]. I don't know when this changed, but since the former is the format on the help, and is the format I use daily, there are dozens if not hundreds of broken cites now. I also thought that the portion of the cite next to the # used to renumber (i.e. #S2|Text would become #S1|Text if the old S1 was deleted), and that doesn't happen now either.

I request one of the following (in order of preference) 1) the old format be supported again and the renumbering be reinstated; 2) an automated replacement of the broken format with the new one; 3) a shorter and more intuitive supported format (like, uh, the old one... three elements, an underscore and a dash do not stay in my brain at all). --Amelia 11:58, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

This has been fixed. (It broke when I combined source citations with the <ref> and <references> citations.) Sources can be cited either by [[#S1|Text]] or {{cite|S1|Text}}; the latter prints Text in superscript. It is still broken on cached pages, but you can either edit the page or wait a day for it to drop out of the cache.
I just tested both formats for renumbering, and they do appear to be renumbered if earlier sources are deleted. I didn't make any changes there so I'm not sure why that wasn't working for you. Please let me know if it's still not working. Thanks.--Dallan 10:05, 18 June 2011 (EDT)
Thanks! And I confirmed that the renumbering seems to work for [[#S1|Text]] . In the course of doing that, I realized that the syntax <ref name=S1/> does not seem to renumber. I'm sure that's a different bit of programming, but a similar issue.--Amelia 12:50, 18 June 2011 (EDT)
Ah, that's right. I'll change that as well. No more time today, so early next week.--Dallan 14:10, 18 June 2011 (EDT)
