    Default Category list for FB Lexi is broken

    The automatic category list for FB Lexi is broken as it shows categories with 0 members in it which are often deleted categories or the results of typos. It used to work fine before but it doesn't now.

    This list specifically:
    http://whfb.lexicanum.com/mediawiki/...et=&limit=2000

    40 Lexicanum list works fine.

    Found another problem with the fantasy Lexi. If I go to the http://whfb.lexicanum.com/wiki/File:Mutalith_Vortex_Beast_M01.jpgecial:UncategorizedFiles"]Uncategorized Images[/URL] section it lists this image as uncategorized when it has two categories in it.

    Don't leave space between Category: and the Category name. And the recent changes page looks all wrong - was there some edit in the last time?

    Is there any problem with having that space? I'm pretty sure it's unrelated to my category problem, but I could be wrong.

    I copied the Recentchangestext from the 40k lexi into the Fb one. It's a very convenient tool that should be available to all, rather than buried in special pages section.

    Well, look at the Uncategorized Images now. (btw, the images left - uploaded by you - have no category at all)

    I don't know if this is the reason, but due to some changes in the past by User Madness the English 40k Lex isn't fully compatible to the rest of the Lexicanum.

    Ah, you meant my auto uncategorized list problem. It's still strange, since the Archmage miniature file has the space and shows no problem.

    I don't really see what the issue is? I mean the text is white and it doesn't have the good-looking border 40k has, but I feel like those are very minor details.

    *shrug* well, it worked with the Mutalith image. Who knows.

    Regarding the English 40k lex: the changes were not merely cosmetic. Several years the preview function of the search didn't work for example. It's just not a good source for copy&paste.

    Do you have a date since when the Recent changes page looks like this? I don't visit the english Lx that often and it would help to find the cause.

    Oh wait are you not talking about the MediaWiki:Recentchangestext? Because if you're talking about the browinsh cubes it was fairly recently, I think it was right after the BOLS website update.

    What I always said (not only me) confirmed once again: He basically broke the compatibility of the different Lexicani. And who knows what else.
