@Bodhisattwa: Thanks for reporting this! Could you clarify if this is a new problem (regression) which did not happen a few days ago?

Aklapper renamed this task from Numerical sorting in File usage section of Bengali Wikisource to Numerical sorting in File usage section of Bengali Wikisource: 100 comes before 11, 2, 99.Oct 21 2016, 2:16 PM

@Bodhisattwa: Thanks for reporting this! Could you clarify if this is a new problem (regression) which did not happen a few days ago?

@Aklapper, no, this is not a new problem.

Ah. So changes were merged two days ago in T146675#2730283.
While no planned deployments of merged software changes took place this week, the evening SWAT deployment on Oct19, 2016 was used, as it lists kaldari: [config] 316486 Switching 10 wikis to numeric category collation per T146675.

@Aklapper, that was for numerical sorting in categories only, right? Was it also for File usage section in NS:File?

Ah. So changes were merged two days ago in T146675#2730283.
While no planned deployments of merged software changes took place this week, the evening SWAT deployment on Oct19, 2016 was used, as it lists kaldari: [config] 316486 Switching 10 wikis to numeric category collation per T146675.

Those changes were for changing Category collation i.e. fixing the order in which entries in Categories appear. I'm not sure we have an immediate fix for the problem reported here. @kaldari should know more.

This bug exists on all wikis and is not related to category collation. Here's an example from English WikiSource:
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/File:DOJ_Report_on_Shooting_of_Michael_Brown.djvu

It's probably not something we'll be able to get to in the immediate future, but it sounds like a good bug for a hackathon or volunteer dev.

kaldari added a project: Wikisource.
Umherirrender added a subscriber: Umherirrender.

It is about the "The following 87 pages link to this file:" section on a file description page.

The sorting is the same as on Special:PrefixIndex for this kind of file: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Special:PrefixIndex/Page:DOJ_Report_on_Shooting_of_Michael_Brown.djvu/

This is possible to fix, when each page holds its own sorting information for sorting on Special:AllPages or maintenance list. This is not easy to fix. See T32753
