Description Ellen Finch 2004-09-14 23:59:10 UTC
When one inadvertently ends up at Special:Categories, there is no introductory
text to tell you what the list is nor where to go to find something actually
useful (such as links to Wikipedia:Category and Wikipedia:Browse by category. 
As it currently stands, this page does nothing for you...  Would also be useful
to add some feature that would at least take you to categories by letter of the
alphabet, I guess.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-09-22 01:02:36 UTC
Fixed in cvs. Header will be available as MediaWiki:categoriespagetext
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-09-22 01:03:23 UTC
backported to 1.3
Comment 3 Ellen Finch 2004-09-22 20:58:46 UTC
I'm very excited about this--but I just created
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Categoriespagetext and put text into it but that
didn't seem to do anything. Did I (once again) misunderstand name spaces?

Yep. You want http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Categoriespagetext
Comment 5 Ellen Finch 2004-10-01 22:02:19 UTC
Aren't we running 1.3 (notes say backported to 1.3)? This page now has text in
it but it doesn't display at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Categories
or even 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Categories

Sorry to be a pest--
