It would be great if there would be an option to add a link to a list of backlinks to a context menu on every wiki page.

No, it is not the same. BackLinksMenuMacro adds a menu to to content of the page. I would like to have just a link in the context menu (next to Last Change entry for example). And when opening that link you would get a stand-alone page with a list of pages (and tickets) referencing the original page.

Very similar to what MasterTicketsPlugin has for dependencies between tickets. So it adds Debgraph entry to the context menu and then you open the page where dependency graph is shown: screenshot.

From a user interface perspective this is much better as most users do not want this information so it is not good to clobber the content (and thus information area - area which user wants to get information from and only information, this days there is too much information and there is no point of squeezing even more in there) just for those few instances you would like to see this information. Furthermore, that information would be available for every page not just for those where the macro would be added.

Of course macros as they are are useful for adding this information to some special pages where you want to present this information. But if you want that this information is available on every page then they are not suitable.

I understand. But I'll write a new plugin to do this, since it is not the purpose of this plugin.

Closing this bug
