Ah, I think I see what you mean now.

If the link to C is an intext hyperlink in article X, then I think the link will be gone.

If it's a case of article C is linked to from the list of related articles at the end of X, the editor could shift it over to the new combined article as part of the update process.

I'm not sure what is involved in generating redirects like what you describe. That would be a Trond (our Webmaster) question. I don't know if that would be an easy change or a hard change or is somehow not a factor due to the way the CMS already operates. I suppose we can ask him.

I think if you guys ask Trond that would help a lot. If redirects are possible probably impacts how aggressively we merge articles. If redirects are not possible, tracking down 'what links to this page' will be quite difficult.
