Description MZMcBride 2008-09-26 07:48:01 UTC

That query is listing links to category pages for this page:

However, after running the page through ExpandTemplates, it is somewhat apparent that the categorylinks table isn't being properly used. The output looks like: [[Category:All articles with unsourced statements]][[Category:Articles with unsourced statements since March 2007]]

Those links indicate that the links would go in the categorylinks table, however, oddly, the second category seems to be being put in the pagelinks table. This is a fairly common quirk on the English Wikipedia.

The API output is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <page pageid="640040" ns="0" title="10.5 (TV miniseries)">
          <pl ns="14" title="Category:Articles with unsourced statements since March 2007" />
          <pl ns="14" title="Category:Film articles needing expert attention" />

The article text is said to not contain any initial-colon category links.

The links in question are added by #ifexist. This is expected.
