Description Morten Blaabjerg 2006-07-26 10:09:41 UTC
When a template is used for category insertion, and used with a variable for the category 
sort key, (such as {{templatename|sortkey}}, with template text being 
[[Category:name|sortkey]]) - the template messes up the sort key of the category, listing 
pages below "{" instead of the beginning letters. This occurs both with using ordinary 
text as sortkey, as well as variables such as {{PAGENAME}}.

of course.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-07-26 18:11:23 UTC
Confirmed on test-wiki:  Note
that category display on the page itself is also buggy, see [[Test:6821]] (if
that works).

Probably has been fixed by someone in the meantime.
