Below are the various Wiki Maintenance Categories used to track errors and problems on the wiki. Many below are found in Category:Wiki Maintenance Categories, Special:SpecialPages, and Special:TrackingCategories but there may be others which have not been appropriately categorised.

These categories can be used to find widespread errors, or fix problems only affecting a few pages. However, be aware that some are manually applied, while others are automatically applied and could have been sorted by a previous fix, but still waiting for the job queue to run through and clear them.

Pages with distances specified in both miles and km- (0 item(s))

This category lists pages where distances have been specified in both miles and km. This is not permitted as conflicting values could be entered. Distances should always be one or the other and dynamically converted. This list should be regularly reviewed and infoboxes/routeboxes altered to ensure only one type of distance is present.

Hidden categories- (47,507 item(s))

Self Explanatory, no action needed

Indexed Pages- (0 item(s))

The page has a __INDEX__ on it (and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed), and hence is indexed by robots where it normally wouldn't be.

The page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word __NOINDEX__ on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.

Pages That May Need Updating- (31 item(s))

Sandbox templates- (103 item(s))

For information only.

Uncategorised Categories

These are categories that aren't categorised within another category.

Uncategorised Files

These are like images not in a gallery, but aren't.

Uncategorised Pages

Pages should normally be categorised. These are ones that aren't.

Uncategorised Templates

Templates that aren't categorised.

Unused Categories

Categories that don't contain anything - most are pictures categories, not sure how these work with galleries.

Wanted Categories

Here is a list of categories that are linked to but don't exist. They either should be created, or, (for example if they are galleries (with _pictures suffix) or simply mis-spellings) they may need creating or they possibly are duplicate galleries with different capitalisation so perhaps shouldn't be created and instead the contents moved.

Working Notes Pages- (48 item(s))

Pages used by users to help with the creation of pages, or as background notes pages to be developed into full articles.


Other

Broken Redirects

These are redirects that go nowhere.

Dead End Pages

These are pages that don't link anywhere else.

Double Redirects

Double redirects should be resolved by redirecting the initial page to the surviving page.

Dubious Name- (167 item(s))

Junctions and bridges where the name may have been invented by over enthusiastic sabristi.

Incomplete Lists- (36 item(s))

Self Explanatory - if you've got the knowledge, add to the lists!

List of Redirects

Not entirely sure how useful this is.

Orphaned Pages

Pages that are not linked from or transcluded into other pages in the wiki

Pages containing omitted template arguments- (0 item(s))

The page is bigger than $wgMaxArticleSize after expanding a template argument (something in triple braces, like {{{Foo}}}).

Pages using invalid self-closed HTML tags- (0 item(s))

List of pages containing invalid self-closed HTML tags, such as <b/> or <span/>. The behavior of these will change soon to be consistent with the HTML5 specification, so their use in wikitext is deprecated.

Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls- (2 item(s))

This category contains pages with template calls that pass the same argument more than once, such as {{foo|bar=1|bar=2}} and {{foo|bar|1=baz}}. Open any of these articles in an editing window, click the Show preview button, and the software will highlight which parameter and which template needs attention. Search for and correct the parameter (e.g. by removing duplicates). Preview the page again and save the page IF the software message is no longer present. Otherwise there may be more than one duplicate parameter that needs correcting.

Pages where expansion depth is exceeded- (0 item(s))

Self explanatory (only joking)

Pages where node count is exceeded- (0 item(s))

Pages exceeding the maximum node count. I'm sure this is probably a bad thing.

Pages where template include size is exceeded- (0 item(s))

This is where the number of templates in a page make it too complex

Pages with ignored display titles- (0 item(s))

Pages with has an ignored {{DISPLAYTITLE}} because it is not equivalent to the page's actual title.

Pages with broken file links- (28 item(s))

The page contains a broken file link (a link to embed a file when the file does not exist). See also: Special:WantedFiles below

Pages with errors- (277 item(s))

Auto generated; check each page for details of error

Pages with template loops- (0 item(s))

Pages containing a template loop, ie. a template which calls itself recursively.

Pages with too many expensive parser function calls- (0 item(s))

Page using too many expensive parser functions (like #ifexist).

Special SABRE pages- (27 item(s))

For reference only

Pages using DynamicPageList parser function- (48,781 item(s))

This is an automatically generated category that lists all pages using dpl. However, dpl makes our site work, and pretty much every single page contains a template that uses dpl, so the category isn't particularly useful!

Pages using DynamicPageList parser tag- (0 item(s))

We can also use a dpl parser tag method, but we tend not to, so this category typically will be empty

Wanted Pages

New content creation required!

Pages with unknown Legislation Code- (0 item(s))

This is where Template:LegislationLink is called using an unknown legislation code. This is either a mistake, or perhaps a new type of legislation has been added to legislation.gov.uk. These should be checked and resolved


Templates

Engineer pages with no list template

These should be reviewed and the list template added.

Pages with invalid listing status- (0 item(s))

Auto generated

Unindexed Rivers Templates

These pages should be reviewed and added to River index pages.

Pages with Unknown Engineers- (100 item(s))

These should be reviewed, and obvious errors corrected. New engineers can then be identified and appropriate engineers added

Ferry pages with no Route Lists

These should be reviewed and Route Lists added for each ferry port, if appropriate.

Junction pages with no Route Lists

These should be reviewed and Route Lists added, if appropriate.

Pages with Invalid Template Placement- (1 item(s))

This category contains pages where there is an invalid template placement

Pages with Multiple Navbox Templates- (5 item(s))

This category contains pages with multiple callings of Template:Navbox. These pages should have their additional invocations of the Navbox template removed so that it only appears once on any page.

Pages not using Rating Template

These should be reviewed and the Rating added, if appropriate.

Pages with Multiple Rating Templates- (1 item(s))

This category contains pages with multiple callings of Template:Rating. These pages should have their additional invocations of the Rating template removed so that it only appears once on any page.

Pages not using Video List Template

Unused Templates; supposedly. A random sample suggests most, if not all, are in use.

Any templates which are only called via the navbox are filed here, as it lists all templates not called directly.

Wanted Templates

Templates that are linked to but don't exist. There shouldn't be any of these.


Images and Galleries

Semi automatically created tracker for images in duplicate galleries to tidy

Galleries with no corresponding page- (197 item(s))

Crown Dependency Roads needing images

Self Explanatory

Galleries with no parent- (38 item(s))

Self Explanatory; these should be tidied (although the A441 gallery doesn't appear to be able to be fixed)- 8 members 27/4/18

Icons- (18 item(s))

Image files used for various purposes on the wiki across many different pages.

Images not in a gallery- (62 item(s))

Needs Image- (19,492 item(s))

Self explanatory - added by user

Pictures from Geograph- (9,126 item(s))

Nightmarish category that should be pictures from Geograph only, but owing to two bugs, firstly everything uploaded is categorised as this, until secondly it is edited at which case the category is removed again, rendering it completely flawed. A third bug with this means that the parent gallery also appears to be categorised in this way. Eugh.

Pictures not categorised by road- (7,830 item(s))

Self explanatory. over 6500 members 27/4/18

Pictures not categorised by year- (9,227 item(s))

Self explanatory. Note that if an image had +only+ a year (i.e. no month and day), and someone edits it, the year can be removed. This would be visible in the history for the image and can be re-added. The year might also be present in the extended information from the camera, although this cannot necessarily be fully relied upon

Pictures with potentially invalid years- (1 item(s))

Pictures in this category have suspect year values, i.e. <1000 (this should therefore return two digit years or errors such as 0018 so that these can be corrected) or greater than the current year

Pictures without coords- (12,853 item(s))

Self Explanatory. Over 13,000 members 27/4/18

All videos using the Gallery Template

Gallery Videos not categorised by road- (7 item(s))

Self explanatory

Gallery Videos without coords- (6 item(s))

Self explanatory


Mapping

Articles with extracts from NPE Maps- (6 item(s))

This category shows articles that have the {{Npemap}} template, which marks the page as having an extract from http://npemaps.org.uk.

These should be replaced where possible by extracts from SABRE Maps via the {{Mapbox}} template.

Articles with in-copyright mapping- (436 item(s))

This category shows articles that have the {{Newmap}} template, which marks the page as having within a small scanned extract of an in-copyright map. The scan must show information that can only be presented in this way, and must be of a relatively low resolution. This template MUST be used on all articles that contain an in-copyright map.

It is not acceptable to use the Newmap template as a reason for ignoring copyright, and the Site Management Team may remove any image that they feel breaks fair use, or where such a request is made by the copyright holder.

SABRE's current understanding of the copyright laws is as follows:

United Kingdom

OS and OSNI mapping is subject to Crown Copyright, and 50 full years must elapse before copyright lapses For other mapping published in the United Kingdom, copyright lapses in 70 years, unless there is a named author, in which case copyright lapses 70 years after that person's death

Republic of Ireland

OSI mapping prior to 2001 is subject to Government Copyright, and 50 full years must elapse before copyright lapses OSI mapping after 2001 is NOT subject to Government Copyright, and 70 full years must elapse before copyright lapses For other mapping published in the Republic of Ireland, copyright lapses in 70 years, unless there is a named author, in which case copyright lapses 70 years after that person's death

Articles with mapping of uncertain copyright- (338 item(s))

This category is designed for use on map scans whose copyright status is uncertain. For all items in this category, the copyright status needs to be ascertained, and this template removed for an out-of-copyright map, replaced by the {{Newmap}} template if it is suitable for that category, or deleted.

This category should as far as possible be kept empty at all times.

Self Explanatory - auto added

Routebox needing Route Trace- (578 item(s))

Ferry Route needing Route Trace- (5 item(s))

Dynamically generated on pages where a crossing is a ferry or a former ferry but there is no trace for its route.

Needs OSM trace- (23 item(s))

Added by user - asking for trace to be added or uploaded from OSM. Some appear to have traces...

Categories used for site functioning

These are included for reference only and need not be altered.

Pages with References- (905 item(s))

This is a category which to which pages with references are automatically added. Its purpose is for the References template to check the page being viewed to determine whether or not it contains references, and to dynamically show or hide the References section accordingly.

Pages with External Links- (712 item(s))

This is a category which to which pages with external links are automatically added (where the link is generated from the Template:Link - this might be useful for something at some point.


Obsolete
