CategoryTree improvement

  • Problem: CategoryTree serious limitations
  • Who would benefit: all Wikipedia where installed
  • Proposed solution:
    1. add listitem="normal" or similar option to display category items w/o italic style
    2. add some visual hint "not a full list" when the category exceeds the default 200 items
    3. add option from="ItemName" or start="ItemNumber" to be able to display something other than 200 first items in a large category

    1. First posted at Russian Techforum with actual samples - w:ru:Википедия:Форум/Технический#CategoryTree
    2. (Re)consider how actual is the limitation of DynamicPageList "any small to medium sized Wikis (It is known to have scalability issues with very large wikis)". Wikipedia should be a rather big baby by now :-) to hold it properly.
