Hide category-search-option if categories are not indexed in wiki
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

The option "Pages in these categories:" in Advanced search should only be shown if the option is usable on the wiki. For this to be the case, the categories of the wiki have to be indexed. At the moment only some wikis are indexed. The list can be found here:

I'm closing this ticket because we decided earlier to add a warning message to the infotext of deepcat instead. I have created this ticket for it T194256. That should resolve the same issue.

I think it would make sense for the tickets you write to name them in a way that describes the issue but does not offer a solution yet. That makes it easier to collect further perspectives and potentially change the direction later on without having to make another ticket. I think it's important to add your solution to the ticket as well, but I would suggest doing that in a comment. When a consensus is reached, the final solution can be added to the task description and that will be what the developers will then estimate.
