MediaWiki:Scribunto-doc-page-header does not propagate categories
Closed, DeclinedPublicBUG REPORT


List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):

  • edit MediaWiki:Scribunto-doc-page-header and add a category

What happens?:
The category is present in the MW page itself, but is missing from any module /doc subpages

What should have happened instead?:
The category should be present in all module /doc subpages

For comparison, other Scribunto MW pages, e.g. MediaWiki:Scribunto-doc-page-show work normally, any added categories will show on all module pages.

Event Timeline

It is not expected for system messages to add the category from the system message to a page where the system message is used.

For the message scribunto-doc-page-show or scribunto-doc-page-does-not-exist it is extra part of the code to allow that the category is working as expected by normal pages, because the lua page cannot contains the syntax for the category.

You have to add the category to each doc by a template and not by a system message.

Per above, system messages do not add categories.
