Description Thomas Bleher 2007-12-19 10:57:08 UTC
On Wikis with two or more content namespaces, categories don't look so nice because all articles of a namespace (say Help:) are grouped under "H" by default.

This patch introduces the option to completely ignore the namespace for sorting in category pages.

Consistently using [[Category:Mycat|{{PAGENAME}}]] solves this issue.

WONTFIX?
Comment 2 Thomas Bleher 2007-12-19 19:37:48 UTC
Yes, using [[Category:Mycat|{{PAGENAME}}]] (or even {{DEFAULTSORT:{{PAGENAME}}}}) works, but isn't this a bit hard on the users? 

IMHO, manually doing this just wastes time. We already do this for categories, so I think it makes sense to allow it for other namespaces, too.
Comment 3 Thomas Bleher 2008-09-14 14:33:16 UTC
Fixed in r38992, configuration variable is $wgCategoryPrefixedDefaultSortkey.
