Description

On Special:Categories, the intuitive thing is to try Special:Categories?from=Houses and expect a response like:

  • [[Category:Houses]]
  • [[Category:Houses in Bulgaria]]
  • [[Category:Houses in California]]

...

In fact, one gets:

  • [[Category:Houses in Bulgaria]]
  • [[Category:Houses in California]]

...

Because Houses is supplied as an offset to index pager, and as we know, the the offset is search non-inclusively. Hence, it doesn't show.

This is fine for many other special pages. CategoryPager should probably be adjusted to not make this mistake, however; Special:PrefixIndex already uses custom code to ensure this.

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.
