Description Sherool 2005-10-20 17:53:32 UTC
It would appear that the File links section on the Image: namespace only show up to 500 links (in no 
particular order), this can be a little troublesome with images that are used a lot (for example in stub 

Look for example on the image in the URL field in this report. It's used in about 6 stub templates, but 
looking at it's file links section you can't say wich ones because none of the templates show up among 
the visible file links.

So I would suggest adding a paging scheme, simmilar to how categories work. That way you could browse 
though multiple pages worth of file links easily (or if that's inpractical for caching reasons, add a new 
specialpage to enumerate file links for a particular file).

I support this proposal. It is very difficult to fix ghost links or track down a
specific file if you cannot list all the files linked to an image.
