Description ejsanders 2006-05-20 17:24:13 UTC
It should be possible to disable galleries is category pages (possibly with a
keyword such as __NOGALLERY__) for categories that are used to mark copyright
images, as the resulting pages (see link) are not a fair use of the images.

Categories marked as __NOGALLERY__ should link to the images inline instead,
listing them with the other pages in the category.

Fixed in SVN.
Comment 2 Raimond Spekking 2006-07-05 16:09:49 UTC
This new magic word has no effect during editing and previewing of a category.
The thumbnails are shown. Bug or feature?

? It works fine. See
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:English_pronunciation .
Comment 4 Raimond Spekking 2006-07-06 10:49:52 UTC
Yes, but not in edit-mode. If you do not have the option "Show preview on first
edit" hit "show preview" please. Do you see filenames or thumbnails/icons?

Ah. I see what you mean. Yes, I see thumbnails. As you were...
Comment 6 omniplex 2006-07-08 00:05:36 UTC
Somewhat beside the point, but I rarely edit
category pages - some short initial "about",
and that's it. So this reopened bug won't hit
me too often. Unfortunately some users revert
additions of __NOGALLERY__ because they think
that a Wiki is for broadband users, and seeing 
images is more fun where they load fast. With
a __NOGALLERY__ override in the "preferences"
there would be a better chance that it sticks.
Comment 7 ejsanders 2006-08-04 00:38:35 UTC
This feature seems to have stopped working.
Comment 8 Raimond Spekking 2006-08-09 16:21:09 UTC
The function of __NOGALLERY__ is broken. For example see
[[Commons:Category:Spoken Wikipedia - German]]
Comment 9 brianna.laugher 2006-08-10 01:28:00 UTC
WORKSFORME? Not sure why you guys think it doesn't work...
Comment 10 ejsanders 2006-08-10 02:30:01 UTC
The en.wiki version was definitely broken for the last few days, but is working
now. Could be out of date software on different servers I suppose....
Comment 11 Brion Vibber 2006-08-11 22:58:46 UTC
It doesn't work in preview, which confuses people.
Comment 12 brianna.laugher 2006-08-15 11:54:01 UTC
Hmm weirdness. Although it still works for old categories (as linked
previously), it doesn't seem to work for new ones.  Perhaps it has *stopped*
working? See
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikimania_2006_-_audio_recordings .

Works for me...try clearing your cache (CTRL-F5 if you're using IE, something similar 
for FireFox which I forget right now)

HTH HAND

That didn't work. But action=purge did. 

Nevermind.
