The "Template:Commons category" links to a "Category:" name on Wikimedia Commons. If that category name is misspelled or missing, the link will still appear "blue" even though the link will fail, so please be careful.

Usage

{{Commons category}} puts link-box with current page's name as the category.
{{Commons category|catnam}} puts link-box which replaces the page's name with the text in catnam.
{{Commons category|catnam|shownam}} puts link-box showing the title shownam.
