Some categories on tuscriaturaswiki are listed in backend as pages and appear in page lists
Open, NormalPublic


Hi, my wiki has some wiki categories that appear as pages.
Some categories on my wiki are listed as pages. I think is a backend issue.

What i expect:

  • Not to see categories on pages like:áginasCortas

What do i see:
Pages like:

On Special:ShortPages and many other lists.

What i want
To be able to do lists without categories appearing on the lists.

Can someone run a php script to fix this issue¿¿

I would like to start by apologizing on the project's behalf that your task was not resolved within a reasonable time. The community has now decided via RfC to merge with WikiTide and former volunteers will be returning and new ones will likely join. An event such as this one is unlikely to occur again.

Since your task has been opened for a long time, please let us know if (1) you still need it to be done or (2) if it's a bug: if it's still occurring.

This still happens. If you click on Special:ShortPages you can see the category pages are still there.
I want this to be done so i don't see categories listed as pages.

I'll prevent categories from showing up on ShortPages.

This issue is still unresolved. The issue keeps happening. You just have to check the Special:ShortPages and see the category pages are still there.

I hope someone reopen this and continue with the task @OrangeStar

Since, to my knowledge, all Miraheze wikis are on Miser mode, Special pages like this don't automatically upload. I'll try and find out how often they update, but I've heard a week, and I've asked for confirmation. Anyway, if this isn't fixed in a week, we'll look closer at what other causes may be.

Special pages appear to be updated every 5:00 AM (server time, hopefully UTC but I haven't checked) if the day of the month is divisible by three (for my interpretation; I don't know how */3 is handled for something that is one-indexed), so about two to three times weekly.


(Also, does miser mode affect Special:ShortPages? That page doesn't bring up a "The following data is cached, and was last updated... " message)

It's been over two weeks, and categories still appear in ShortPages. Cache appears to be regenerated on 08:17, 13 June 2024 per
