Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-09-18 06:27:30 UTC
For some reason, Category:Geography seems to be the place 
for discussing this, but there's nothing special about 

Category:Geography, along with 7 other categories, has 
been made to look like the portal.

There should be options to make it like categories 
normally are or like the portal, and if it is like the 
portal, there should be options for placing the 
subcategories, article, and portal.

Don't understand what this means.
Comment 2 Brian Jason Drake 2006-02-04 05:37:57 UTC
We used to be experimenting with and discussing this 
mainly at en:Category( talk):Geography, although we could 
have used any category and it would work just as well.

The standard parts that appear on every category page are 
the subcategories and pages in that category. For a while 
on en:, the main page categories showed the portals as 

The user should be able to choose whether the portals, 
the standard parts or both are displayed when they view 
category pages.

That doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.
You've got some content, so just scroll down to see the lists. Done.

Resolving WONTFIX.
