Is there a way to automatically categorize pages that contain broken links to files? --源田幸次郎 ビースト ファング!! 09:37, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

Once your wiki gets upgraded to MediaWiki 1.19 (check Special:Version on your wiki to see which version you're on, it's probably still 1.16), you'll automatically have this feature. For example, if I put on this page, you can see that it gets added to Category:Pages with broken file links automatically. This is a new feature in MediaWiki 1.19 that you will have soon, you just have to wait for your particular wiki to get upgraded. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 10:03 UTC, Sat, 11 August 2012
You could make a bot to go through Special:Wantedfiles and add categories to all the pages requesting files that don't exist. -- 06:14, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
