[Edit Documentation]

size=40x40px This template is used on over 2500 pages. Take extra care when making changes, testing them in a sandbox first. If changes to this template require changes to pages that use it, you are responsible for making those changes.

This template is used for categorizing pages.

Usage

{{Cat| category | sort key | group= }}

  • category — The name of the category you want to sort a page into
  • sort key — Optional parameter if you want to change how a page is sorted. If you leave sort key blank, it'll automatically sort the page correctly into the category. (Optional. Default: {{PAGENAME}})
  • group — Sort the page into the given group in {{Navboxes}}. (Optional.)

Advanced Usage

When used in templates to automatically apply a category to certain pages, some may be excluded by using {{Cat| category | nocat=true }}. For example, to exclude the template itself from the category:

{{Cat|Category<noinclude>|nocat=true</noinclude>}}
