Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-05-03 17:47:59 UTC

'special:Whatlinkshere/foo' links which are available at

Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-05-03 18:32:12 UTC
"What links here" is not appropriate for these cases due to their nature.
Categories aren't "linked to" by their members in the traditional manner, so
links here don't make sense.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-05-03 18:58:52 UTC
Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was thinking that [[MediaWiki:Nlinks]] counts
inline references to a list item (here a category). Such inline references may
still exist in the wiki.

Do we need a [[MediaWiki:Nmembers]] here to make this more clear?

Do these counters sum to th total of
# page members
# file members
# category members (including / excluding a self reference)


Thinking about your comment I assume that the [[MediaWiki:Nlinks]] counters at
[[Special:Mostimages]] relates to inclusion via image syntax only.

This is raising the question about handling of audio files. I am not very
familiar with audio file syntax.
