Style pages based on categories
Language(s): JavaScript
Compatible with: MediaWiki 1.17+ 

DescriptionEdit

Adds a CSS class to the <body> tag for every category the current page belongs to. This can be useful to apply specific styles to all pages on the wiki that are included on a given category. Each class will have a "cat-" prefix followed by the category name, with spaces and dots converted to underscores and special characters encoded.

You can later write styles like body.cat-Some_category to apply styles to pages belonging to that category.
