Description Arnold Reinhold 2004-09-03 00:40:18 UTC
Say you have a category called Foo with a subcategory called Foobar andsya there is also an article called Foobar that is categorized under Foo. Then 
category Foo only seems to display the subcategory Foobar. The article appears in neither category. I observed this with Category;Reconnaissance 
satellites on the public version of Wikipedia on 2004-9-2.

I'm using Safari 1.2.3.

I can't reproduce this on my 1.3 installation; the proposed test case works perfectly. Both the subcategory Foobar and the article 
Foobar are displayed in the Foo category page.

There is no article [[Reconnaissance satellites]] on en.wikipedia.org, so that doesn't even match the test case. Can you clarify?
Comment 2 bfyltuh02 2005-07-24 17:50:58 UTC
create an article "foo"
click "move article"
move to "category:foo" => refused
move to ":category:foo" => accepted, but article "foo" is lost
Comment 3 bfyltuh02 2005-07-24 17:52:04 UTC
if category:foo is a subcategory and you delete it, it will remain in the parent
category
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-09-02 23:44:56 UTC
How are all these things related?

Comment #2 seems to be a namespace parsing / move bug in 1.4 (not present in 1.5) that 
has nothing to do with categories specifically. What are these other things?
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-09-07 08:02:09 UTC
Re-resolving this as WORKSFORME; comment #2 is covered by newly filed bug 3380.
