Description Robert Leverington 2006-11-26 10:11:44 UTC
Special:Uncategorized_pages only shows 1,000 pages, this is a problem on even medium sized 
wikis. I have proved that it isn't just that it is because the wiki has exactly 1,000 
pages as the bug ocurs on meta:
index.php?title=Special:Uncategorizedpages&limit=10000000&offset=0 and the commons http://

Good day.

These are all the query pages.
Comment 2 Rotem Liss 2006-11-26 15:16:23 UTC
It may be caused by caching, by the way.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-11-26 17:11:50 UTC
It is due to caching, at least on Wikimedia web sites, where this is enabled.
The query page caching utilities will cache up to a maximum of 1000 results to
save time (these things are cached due to the performance cost, after all) -
1000 results is considered sufficient for people to work on before the next
re-cache, in most cases.

Not really a bug.
Comment 4 Robert Leverington 2006-11-26 17:47:55 UTC
Is this maximum of 1000 changeable in LocalSettings.php (just not listed at http:// or is it something to do 
with php?
Comment 5 Rob Church 2006-11-26 17:52:26 UTC
The default cache limit is 1000 as defined in
maintenance/updateSpecialPages.php, although individual query pages can override
this in includes/QueryPage.php. At this time, none do.
Comment 6 Rob Church 2006-12-19 13:10:09 UTC
As of r18162, the limit can be customised via $wgQueryCacheLimit.
