Currently the extension doesn't seems to respect the max number of articles
which a book could have ($wgCollectionMaxArticles = 500 [1]).

You can confirm this by going to a big category of Wikipedia, with more than
500 articles (e.g. [[Category:Living_people]]), and adding it to a collection.
The extension will add only 500 pages, but then it should display the warning
from [[MediaWiki:coll-limit_exceeded_text]] ("Your book is too big. No more
pages can be added."), and it doesn't.

Besides this, if you go to another article wich is not in you big book (e.g.
[[Sport]])), and add it, your book will have 501 pages and no warning will be

A user can also easily create a book page ([[Category:Wikipedia books
(community books)]]) with more than 500 pages and then load it into

This inconsistent use of $wgCollectionMaxArticles should be fixed.
