Description Duncan Harris 2007-01-06 15:27:21 UTC
This is a bit like bug 4624 (Special:Whatlinkshere should allow namespace
selection), but for image pages.

File links on image pages should be split into namespace, so it lists all the
main namespace transclusions, then all talk, and so on in order.
Comment 1 Jack D. Pond 2007-04-08 15:48:17 UTC
Would also suggest adding namespace to the hash for the actual file.  Such an upgrade would allow system admins to 
set ACL on the namespaces and sub-directories to allow access only to allowed user groups.  By adding an allowed ACL 
to the MW php programs (example: MWProgram), MW could store and even reference stored images and files.  However a 
user could not access said file either by reference through the file list or by direct access (eg ../images/
[ns]/01/1a/FileName.jpg) if they did not have access to the 'ns' subdirectory.

All existing file names could be left directly in the 'images' subdirectory.
Comment 2 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-06-08 18:43:33 UTC
As the links on the image page don't show all links anyway and Whatlinkshere now shows image links with per namespace filtering, WONTFIX this.
Comment 3 Raimond Spekking 2010-06-29 13:41:31 UTC
Sorting added with  r68719.
Most usages do not hit the (hardcoded) limit of 100. I think it is worth to sort the list even though Special:Whatlinkshere is still unsorted.
