uca-<cy> needs to be run; can someone do that please? Do I need to supply the Welsh alphabet? Llywelyn2000 (talk) 22:23, 15 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Llywelyn2000: uca-cy is implemented and works; do you mean you want to enable it on Welsh-language Wikimedia wikis? If yes, please follow the guide at m:Requesting wiki configuration changes :) Matma Rex (talk) 15:35, 22 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How to set the phonebook versions?[edit]

neither of these options work:

$wgCategoryCollation = uca-de-AT@collation=phonebook;
$wgCategoryCollation = 'uca-de-AT@collation=phonebook';
$wgCategoryCollation = "uca-de-AT@collation=phonebook";

What is the correct way to do this? Or is de-AT not supported at all?

The second and third way should work. Make sure to run the updateCollation.php maintenance script afterwards to update the collation for existing pages (see the red "Warning" box on the manual page). Matma Rex (talk) 20:34, 23 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Numeric collation[edit]

1.31.x Numeric collation does not seem to be working. I have pages numbered 0 - 100: 0 , 1, 2, ... , 11, 12, etc. But they are not sorting in numeric order in the category. I did run updatecollation.php, but no changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 23:30, 31 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think this change takes effect instantaneously. It could be that there's a job queue for processes that need to run to update MediaWiki's categories, too - see Manual:RunJobs.php. Cavila 12:38, 2 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Negative Numbers[edit]

I have some Categories that start with negative numbers, but it looks like numeric doesn't handle negative numbers? --Wordna (talk) 00:23, 6 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Indeed, unfortunately it looks like the order would be -1, -10, 0, 1, 10, … Matma Rex (talk) 17:32, 6 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
