Links in infoboxes[edit]

Hello Joalpe,

I noticed that you changed the genre-value in History of the Peloponnesian War (Q639493) from historiography (Q30277550) to historiography (Q50675). Unfortunately the second is an umbrella term that refers also to the academic discipline. I suppose that you changed it to make the link to the Portuguese page Historiografia appear in the infobox.

There is one way to make this happen without messing with the data structure here (it's a bit circumstantial, but it works): You need a redirect-page that links to historiography (Q30277550) (Q30277550) and redirects to Historiografia.

You find a description of the procedure here: Handling sitelinks overlapping multiple items. It's important that you link the redirect-page to Q30277550 before you enable the redirection.

I hope this is a solution. Please let me know if you have questions or see problems with this approach. Thank you - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 12:12, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
