Description John Blumel 2005-04-27 00:21:33 UTC
In a category with a large number of entries (roughly 1000) the subcategories of
the category only show up on the page that displays articles in the same
alphabetization range as the subcategories.

Thus in my case, I have only three subcategories, all beginning with the same
prefix, "GftP", and they only appear on the second page of article listings. So
it appears to the user as though there are no subcategories when they first load
the category page.

Since there is no necessary relationship between the subcategory names and the
alphabetization of the articles, it would seem to make sense that the
subcategories appear on all paged, irrespective of the article alphabetization
-- or at least some reasonable number of them should.

Ideally, one chould be able to page from listing to listing of subcategories
idependently of articles.
