Description Dan Jacobson 2007-02-04 21:06:37 UTC
Gentlemen, the challenge: how do I make a link to where the D's start
in Special:Categories?

is right, but it changes day to day.

"Sure, just use [[Special:Allpages/Category:D]], and you won't even
need to use {{fullurl}}" you say. However that would only work if each
category page had a body. None do, so they won't be in Allpages.

Does SpecialCategories.php need to take some lessons from
SpecialAllpages.php about allowing fancier arguments?

RC> I'll tell you what; Special:Categories can start taking lessons from
RC> Special:Allpages when the bug report is filed in the right place.

OK. This bug is it. Thanks.

Alphabetical offsets for Special:Categories are now possible (since r19758, I think).
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2008-05-21 23:31:05 UTC
OK, thanks. Now what remains is to enhance Special:Categories, so one wouldn't need
to use {{fullurl}} to make
but instead just use
like Special:Allpages.
Indeed Allpages, IndexPrefix, and Categories should be harmonized...
Yes there is an API, but I'm focusing on the regular user.

Currently the /ARGUMENT is ignored.

Subpage syntax for Special:Categories works. Done by Brion in r35065 and r36111
