Add option to not strip categories (3.04 KB, patch)

Description Steve Sanbeg 2006-12-22 20:01:41 UTC
I think it's better to not remove the categories from the input box, it seems a
bit too heavy-handed, and could cause problems with sort strings, etc.

Add option to not strip categories

The patch adds a new option, and fixes a possible minor bug when the local
Category: namespace contains a regex meta char.

What about that patch? It is from 2006 
and still not in the running version.

Please accept it as soon as possible, for I don't want to pach each updated version with this patch.
It's so old, that it doesn't work anymore and I have to do the patching by hand.

Greetz.

Ahoy,

when you are still about to fix that bug, you could do me a great favour:
Add a variable $wgSelectCategoryNamespaces for selection of which data types use that extension.

That's only 2 minutes work, when you're about to fix that bug anyway.

Reason: I use my wiki for a image gallery, and the extension is only activated for the sake of tagging images. So I need to deactivate it for all page types but media - it shall only be active for namespace "media:".

Thank you ;)

P.S.: Sorry for not opening a new feature request, but this wish is so near correlated to this open bug, and I didn't find out to connect between two tickets.
