Suppress "Pages in this category" heading in categories when there are none
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: brianna.laugher

Just as the "Subcategories" and "Media in category" headings are suppressed on
Category: namespace pages when there are none, so should "Pages in category"
headings be suppressed.

This is useful on Commons and for wikis with deep category trees.

I know this is a duplicate of something, although I can't find it . . . anyway,
the interesting question is, what happens if there are no subcategories *or*
pages *or* media in a category? Should it display like a normal page? Would
that confuse people?

In that case it could display a text like:

"This category is empty."

Just under the page-title, because in this case there are no headings. A
wiki-specific message, maybe in bold or in a bigger font-size, which clearly
states that there isn't any content in the category.

Sounds sane to me.

So, could this be enabled, please?

I don't see there being much of a problem if a category is empty and there are
no headings as a result. Yes, it'll look a little odd to start with but that's
just because it's different from how they are now. Once people get used to it,
it'll be fine.

(PS if you want a bug fixed, then voting for it helps)

Fixed with r20039 without a separate message. Now an empty category is an empty
category is an empty category...
