Default RFE: Need a way of finding Orphaned Wiki pages

Hi Guys,

I've looked through all 102 wiki pages that are on this site and have found a great many pages that are orphans (ie - pages that do not have any other pages linking to them).

The problem with orphaned pages is that there are only two ways to find them:
  1. Read for them through the wiki article list
  2. randomly find one from a search

Users are going to be able to find this information more easily if it's linked to from another page, which is why I'd like to, when looking at a particular wiki page, find out which other pages (and forum posts) re referencing it.

If there are not posts referencing it, then I can simply rename the page to something more descriptive (pages names like "Other" are not terribly useful).

Similarly, if I do rename a page, I'd like to be able to modify the referencing pages as well so that they point to the proper page.

PS - if nothing like this exists, please PM me with a URL to the wiki addon for this site. I can have a look at it and see if I can write something simple for it (I'm no stranger to vB plugin development).

I think it does. There is a new special page called 'Island Pages', though I don't appear to have permission to view it.
