Split secondary authors should link back to disambiguation page
Join LibraryThing to post.
(I waffled a lot on whether to post this in RSI or bug collectors; I decided to stick it here because I can see how the system was probably purposely set up this way, I just don't agree with it.)
Normally, a spit author page has a link at the top, under their name, to the disambiguation page for that name:
However, when the author is *only* a secondary author and has no primary works, there is no link to the disambiguation page:
(yes this example I found is an actor and not an author but you can see how this could also happen with translators, narrators, illustrators, etc.)
I can understand why there shouldn't be a link on a split author that truly has no books, but it's frustrating to go to the author page of a secondary author of thousands of works and not have a way to get to the disambiguation page.
This was reported as a bug a while ago: https://www.librarything.com/topic/195133. Supposedly it was fixed, but it wasn't.
