Description Daniel Herding 2005-06-21 10:58:41 UTC

the 'next 200' link points to ...&from=Undelete

If you click it, and then click the 'next 200' again, it will lead to

From then on, it will always point to ...&from=Upload and thereby gives an
infinite loop.

The reason might be that the category is very large (> 10.000 entries), but
there are even larger categories like [[Kategorie:Mann]] where this problem
doesn't occur, so it may also be a flaw in de:'s category database.

Just a note: On the mentioned page also the sorting of image names is completely
screwed starting at some point in the page. And the interesting thing is that
all the unsorted images are from commons.

in response to comment 1 see
bug 2258: Category links in image upload summary field have wrong sort key

see also bug 2327 comment 1 from
bug 2327: sort key is not evaluated again if a page is moved

Regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 3 Daniel Herding 2005-06-26 23:55:41 UTC
I think this is the same as 

(bug 73) Category sort key is set to file name when adding category to
  file description from upload page (previously it would be set to
  "Special:Upload", causing problems with category paging)

which should be fixed in 1.5alpha1.

If this is the case, please close this thread.

Problem seems to have gone after MediaWiki 1.5 upgrade on de:.
