Re: Categories and #REDIRECT?

Okay, one more #REDIRECT question...

How about redirecting TO a Category: page? I read on Meta that you can 
do it by prefacing with a colon, but that it will only show the 
editable text.

Does 1.5 (development) accomplish redirects to Category pages with all 
the included pages for the category?

That would be very handy. For example, I have an Agriculture category, 
but no Agriculture page. I want the word "agriculture" to link to Good 
Stuff, but don't want to go to the trouble of fleshing out an 
Agriculture page at this time. It would be very convenient to #REDIRECT 
it off to [[:Category:Agriculture]] for the present.

Re: Categories and #REDIRECT?

Redirecting to a category page would be very helpful for us.
