Description Phil Boswell 2007-01-08 14:17:47 UTC
It would be helpful, particularly in light of the recent introduction of the 
{{DEFAULTSORT}} magic word, if the sort key could be added to the tooltip which is 
displayed when hovering over a Category link.

For example: if [[bar]] contains [[Category:Foo]], the tooltip, which currently reads 
simply "Category:Foo", could read "Category:Foo|bar". If [[bar]] additionally contains 
{{DEFAULTSORT:baz}} the tooltip could read instead "Category:Foo|baz". 

Alternatively if [[bar]] contains [[Category:Foo|baz]], the tooltip could read 
instead "Category:Foo|baz" as above.

This is inconsistent with our use of tooltips on links everywhere else, and I don't see any good reason for it.  Suggest WONTFIX.
Comment 2 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2011-09-11 01:40:38 UTC
I agree. If in need of debugging sortkeys, one can always use the api.
