Description en:brian0918 2005-06-29 21:48:21 UTC
Clicking "edit" on any Category page goes to the Preview screen first.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-30 06:56:52 UTC
This was caused by bogus fix for bug 1242. Fixed now: preview (w/ list) only 
shows for new category pages not yet existing, not for editing of existing 
Comment 2 Scott Horlbeck 2008-03-26 18:02:42 UTC
I do not understand why it still shows a preview upon the initial visit to a category page that does not yet exist. Why would I want to see a preview of a blank, non-existing page? It doesn't do this in other namespaces.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-03-26 19:28:05 UTC
To show the list of pages in the category.
