Each row represents a a categorylink that starts with 'WikiProject_'. The table uses the the same structure as MediaWiki's [[1]].

cl_from 
Stores the page_id of the article where the link was placed.
cl_to 
Stores the name (excluding namespace prefix) of the desired category. Spaces are replaced by underscores (_)
cl_sortkey 
Stores the title by which the page should be sorted in a category list.
cl_timestamp 
Stores the time at which that link was last updated in the table.

There are three indexes which help improve performance:

  • The concatenation of cl_from and cl_to (for when an article is edited)
  • The concatenation of cl_to and the first 128 bytes of cl_sortkey (for displaying articles in order)
  • The concatenation of cl_to and cl_timestamp

Reproduction[edit]

CREATE TABLE `categorylinks` (

 `cl_from` int(8) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
 `cl_to` varbinary(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT ,
 `cl_sortkey` varbinary(230) NOT NULL DEFAULT ,
 `cl_timestamp` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
 `cl_sortkey_prefix` varbinary(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT ,
 `cl_collation` varbinary(32) NOT NULL DEFAULT ,
 `cl_type` enum('page','subcat','file') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'page',
 `week` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
 `year` int(4) DEFAULT NULL,
 `week_start` timestamp NULL DEFAULT NULL,
 UNIQUE KEY `cl_from` (`cl_from`,`cl_to`),
 KEY `cl_timestamp` (`cl_to`,`cl_timestamp`),
 KEY `cl_collation` (`cl_collation`),
 KEY `cl_sortkey` (`cl_to`,`cl_type`,`cl_sortkey`,`cl_from`),
 KEY `categorylinks_clsortkey_idx` (`cl_sortkey`),

);

INSERT INTO categorylinks SELECT * FROM enwiki.categorylinks WHERE cl_to LIKE 'WikiProject_%'
