Allow more/fewer than 200 pages to be viewed at once in a category
Open, LowPublic

Description

Author: matthew.britton

Description:
It would be nice if the contents of categories could be viewed X pages at a time, for some X other than 200.

Implementation of this would probably best be done in such a way that it matches what is already available for certain special pages (such as [[Special:Contributions]]) - a "limit" parameter in the URL, and a series of links next to the "previous 200" and "next 200" links to change the number of items per page.

If the 5,000-item limit applicable to those special pages is feasible here, great; if not, use whatever is acceptable. I certainly don't think that the limit needs to be more than 5,000 items.

Note, $wgCategoryPagingLimit can be set in LocalSettings.php for something other then 200, but it sounds like you're looking for a non-hard coded limit.

I've also found the hardcoded maximum of 200 items per page when viewing a large category to be less than ideal.

Raising $wgCategoryPagingLimit seems like an easy option. But I'd like to brainstorm other possible approaches here.

Something like on special:log and the like where it shows the first <blah> by default but you have options to change the blah to another number as well as go to the previous/next blah?

I'd like that.
