Description Zhen Lin 2005-05-28 02:43:51 UTC
If an image is uploaded with a category link in the summary box, and if the
category sort key is given as {{PAGENAME}}, {{PAGENAME}} resolves to Upload (as
in Special:Upload). Furthermore, if no category sort key is given, it defaults
to Special:Upload.

This causes newly-uploaded images to be sorted randomly in image category galleries.

For example, if I upload an image with the summary '[[Category:Fair use
images|{{PAGENAME}}]] [[Category:Test images]]':

mysql> SELECT * FROM categorylinks WHERE cl_from=3564;
| cl_from | cl_to           | cl_sortkey     | cl_timestamp        |
|    3564 | Fair_use_images | Upload         | 2005-05-28 02:38:35 |
|    3564 | Test_images     | Special:Upload | 2005-05-28 02:38:35 |

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 73 ***
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-06-05 04:54:13 UTC
This is not a duplicate of bug 73; it's a bug in the fix for bug 73.
Comment 3 Zhen Lin 2005-06-05 09:14:18 UTC
Nonetheless it has been fixed in 1.4.5. Judging by the 1.5alpha2 release notes,
that fix was related to bug 73, so I assumed it was a duplicate.

bug 2327 probably relates to this
Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-09 08:14:26 UTC
This bug (about using variables in upload description with category sortkeys)
seems to be fixed. See: [[wikt:yi:image:Squares_in_quantum_representation.png]]
