Commons file stuck in category
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Theater_of_Portugal has a single file in it, (actually now a redirect) https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:D._Maria,_A_Louca.jpg&redirect=no for no apparent reason. The redirect, file, and category have all been null edited, and even completely blanked, and the file remains listed in this category for some reason.

You have to delete https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=38058518 (Easiest is to get an admin who knows js to do it using the API (e.g. https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/api.php?action=delete&pageid=38058518&token=TOKEN_HERE&reason=invalid%20page but a post request)

Deleted.

I removed it from the category, but i couldn't actually delete the page as I'm not an admin

Appears as if you deleted the redirect, not the page that's fake in the filenamespace. https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=38058518 is still present

Use apisandbox.

Looks like this is still stuck in some categories, too. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Files_with_errors
