Gentlemen, I hereby propose Special:OnlyPages.
Special:OnlyPages differs from Special:AllPages in that whereas
starts at Cheese and just goes on and on without any bottom bound
until the page is filled up, the new
would just list articles that start with Cheese, and no more.
Special:OnlyPages is not meant to replace Special:AllPages, but to
compliment it. Whereas Special:AllPages is oddly missing a bottom
bound, Special:OnlyPages bounds both top and bottom nonprejudicially.
Special:OnlyPages will certainly be easy for you to (please)
implement: Just a MySQL query on SORT INDEX CHEESE or SORT PAGE MATCH
^CHEESE or whatever the SQL for it is.
Indeed perhaps even allow regular expressions.
This already exists as [[Special:PrefixIndex]].
OK, glad that that is taken care of. Now let's turn to part II of the
no lower bound problem: a way to make
not spill over into the categories beyond.
I just want the categories starting with "CTCSS".
One cannot use Special:PrefixIndex, as the CTCSS categories are
hollow: have members but no text.
No I don't want to use an API as this is meant for everyday users.
Also please implement Bug #8881 if you implement this.
