For this you can just use a URL like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/?curid=9253

This is the shortest form.

In the string end in parameter curid instead 9253, you need substitute own page ID.


URL with real full script path and transferred parameter is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9253

Others URL variations are also possible:

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki?curid=9253
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encyclopedia?curid=9253
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Encyclopedia&curid=9253

Note that MediaWiki CMS ignores the page title if you specify a curid parameter, so even

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FooBar?curid=9253

or

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=FooBar&curid=9253

leads to the same page "Encyclopedia".


Or use "Redirect" special page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Redirect/page/9253

Also, you can specify this manually. For this, go to next special page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Redirect

In field "Lookup" choose "Page ID", and in field "Value" insert page ID and press "Go" button below.
