Table of contents for contents of paged categories (e.g. A-Z)
Open, LowPublicFeature


Author: netoholic

Now that we have paging for categories (200 articles) and also the "from=X"
structure, we should also implement a "table of contents" solution like we
have for articles. At the English Wikipedia, an effort has already started to
do this with templates (see, but that solution seems
short-sighted, inefficient, and could potentially grow out of hand.

On all categories which page over, dynamically generate a table of contents
which will jump to the desired heading. The table should not display if the
category is small (under 200 articles), such that paging is not necessary.

Let me also add that, with this feature, we can reduce the overall number of categories.
Specifically those sub-categories that are used only to sort by names ([[Category:Books
by title]]).
