           Summary: Define a new "magic word" __PANOCAT__  for categories
                    with wide images (panoramics)
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Categories
        AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
        ReportedBy: test5...@myway.com


Commons categories for Panoramics
(http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Panoramics_by_country ,
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Panoramics etc.) 
tend to be full of images that are much wider than tall. For these, standard
category thumbnails aren't that useful (e.g. the random sample to the left). 

It would be nice if these categories could rendered with wider thumbnails. It
wouldn't matter much if there was just one per row.

Similar to <nowiki>__NOGALLERY__</nowiki> a magic word could be used to switch
display.


To compare, try:

[[File:Cartagena, Colombia, Landscape.jpg|thumb|600px|Larger thumbnail (height
is still just 76px)]]

[[File:Cartagena, Colombia, Landscape.jpg|thumb|120px|Random panorama from
[[:Category:Panoramics]] with standard category thumbnail size]]
