Allow disabling of galleries in category pages
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Author: ejsanders

Description:
It should be possible to disable galleries is category pages (possibly with a
keyword such as NOGALLERY) for categories that are used to mark copyright
images, as the resulting pages (see link) are not a fair use of the images.

Categories marked as NOGALLERY should link to the images inline instead,
listing them with the other pages in the category.

This new magic word has no effect during editing and previewing of a category.
The thumbnails are shown. Bug or feature?

? It works fine. See
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:English_pronunciation .

Yes, but not in edit-mode. If you do not have the option "Show preview on first
edit" hit "show preview" please. Do you see filenames or thumbnails/icons?

Ah. I see what you mean. Yes, I see thumbnails. As you were...

Somewhat beside the point, but I rarely edit
category pages - some short initial "about",
and that's it. So this reopened bug won't hit
me too often. Unfortunately some users revert
additions of NOGALLERY because they think
that a Wiki is for broadband users, and seeing
images is more fun where they load fast. With
a NOGALLERY override in the "preferences"
there would be a better chance that it sticks.

This feature seems to have stopped working.

The function of NOGALLERY is broken. For example see
[[Commons:Category:Spoken Wikipedia - German]]

WORKSFORME? Not sure why you guys think it doesn't work...

The en.wiki version was definitely broken for the last few days, but is working
now. Could be out of date software on different servers I suppose....

It doesn't work in preview, which confuses people.

Hmm weirdness. Although it still works for old categories (as linked
previously), it doesn't seem to work for new ones. Perhaps it has *stopped*
working? See

Works for me...try clearing your cache (CTRL-F5 if you're using IE, something similar
for FireFox which I forget right now)

HTH HAND

That didn't work. But action=purge did.

Nevermind.
