{{Template category}} should be placed at the top of categories that contain template pages and their related subcategories. This template populates Category:Festipedia template categories.

Usage[edit source]

Full syntax[edit source]

{{Template category
| type = 
| topic = 
| description = 
| onright = 
| container = 
| help = 

Parameters[edit source]

The template may be used without any parameters, i.e. as {{Template category}}.

The following, however, may be used to make the template more informative:

type[edit source]

Setting type to one of the following values adds a preset note as to which type of template the category (but not necessarily its subcategories) is meant to contain. The values are:
  • ambox
  • campaignbox
  • conversion
  • external link
  • formatting
  • function
  • message
  • meta
  • navbox
  • navigation
  • sidebar
  • stub
  • sub
  • timeline
  • userbox
If type is set to something other than one of these values, the default "The pages listed in this category are templates" note appears unmodified.
Further examples of type's output appear in the examples below.

topic[edit source]

Use topic to add a default description ending "...relating to topic", where topic is usually a wikilink to the main article associated with the category.

description[edit source]

Use description if a customised description is needed instead of – or, if topic also used, to follow – the default description above.

onright[edit source]

Use onright (or rhs) to place right-aligned boxes beside the template. If more than one box is included, ensure the widest one appears first (see example below) otherwise overlapping may occur.

container[edit source]

Set container as true, yes, etc. to identify the category as a container category]], i.e. a category meant to contain only subcategories. A note requesting that no templates are added to the template category is then included.

help[edit source]

Use help to replace the instructions on adding a template to the category (second paragraph of the "Further template category notes" section):
To omit the default instructions, set help to no:
