I have found the article I was looking for on Wikipedia with the message
This article is an orphan. at the top. I have also found another page with the topic of this article highlighted in red, as if the link should exist but has no target page. The complication is that the term used in the attempted link is not identical to the page title on the article but both are valid and should corefer. How can I make a redirect page whose title is the dead link to solve this problem?
(I hope I explained this clearly enough.)
