Usage

This template should be placed at the top of categories used in the maintenance of Wikipedia rather than as part of the encyclopedia – for example, at the top of Category:Wikipedia administration.

Parameters

The following descriptions assume the template is transcluded on a page in the Category namespace.

|shortcut= Enables a shortcut to the category to be displayed by the template.
Multiple shortcuts are supported: |shortcut1= up to |shortcut5=.
|hidden=true/yes/on Causes the template to hide the page (the category), add it to Category:Hidden categories and to include a {{Hidden category}}-style message.
|tracking=true/yes/on Causes the template to add the page (the category) to Category:Tracking categories and include a {{Tracking category}}-style message.1
To add a short explanation of the tracking category after the message, use |purpose=Short explanation.
|container=true/yes/on Causes the template to add the page (the category) to Category:Container categories and include a {{Container category}}-style message.2
|desc= or |1= or | (first unnamed parameter) Text supplied will be placed below the template with a boldfaced header of "Description:".
(The word "Description" can be replaced by something else, with |alt=Something else).
