Hi, is it possible to get a most linked list within a category? To know which pages of specifically that category are most linked? Thanks! Suriel (talk) 11:42, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Possible, yes. Built-in, no. You'd have to write a JavaScript routine to use the MediaWiki API (1) to get a list of all pages in a category, (2) for every page in the category, to get a list of all pages that link to it, (3) to count the pages that link to it, then (4) to sort the original list by the counts and display it. There's no report built-in to MediaWiki that does that. --Saftzie (talk) 17:47, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
