Random proposal◄ Categories  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!

Display all images of a category and of all sub-categories

  • Problem: Currently, you can see the images directly linked to a category but you need to open each sub-category (for example : if I would like to see all pictures of statues in Antwerp (c:Category:Statues in Antwerp), I need to open 13 sub-categories).
  • Who would benefit: everybody
  • Proposed solution: A button "Display all media in this category and its subcategories"

  • Hello, the new search allow to see pages in subcategories with the keyword "deepcat" (see here). However, it has issues with big categories. And in your case, the search results has very small image thumbnails. --NaBUru38 (talk) 18:57, 7 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
  • A way to not only look down (subcategories), but also up (higher categories) at the top of the category page would also be welcomed. Sometimes, if not often, when trying to find the correct higher category, one has to go through four or even more pages, where on every page one has to scroll down to the bottom to find the higher category, which can be very time consuming.
