Categories using HIDDENCAT should be listed on the edit page
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If a category uses HIDDENCAT (and thus, the categories aren't visible from the article), it would be nice to make them link-able in some way. The most logical way to me would be to list them below the transcluded templates at the bottom of the edit page.

I'm thinking of something else: Hidden categories shouldn't be listed when the article is viewed, but they should be shown below an edit preview. This is a raw idea, though; perhaps a second thought should be given.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
