Usage[change source]

The simplest usage is just {{Monthly clean-up category}} In this case a default message page for that group of categories will need to exist. See Template:Monthly clean-up category/Messages for a list of existing message pages and to understand the naming convention.

Also the category will need to follow the naming convention "Blah blah from December 2019". (See #Limitations for more information.)

If a red-linked counter category is shown, simply populate it with {{Counter category}}.

Parameter toc[change source]

  • toc = focus - gives a focus letter
  • toc = toc - give a category style table of contents
  • toc = none -

Parameter hidden[change source]

  • hidden = n - The category will not be hidden.

Examples[change source]

Focus[change source]

{{Monthly clean-up category
 | type    = silly articles
 | message = silly articles should be deleted
 | toc     = focus
 | cat     = test stubs
}}




This category combines all silly articles from December 2019 (2019-12) to enable us to work through the backlog more systematically. It is a member of Category:test stubs.
silly articles should be deleted
So that articles don't remain in this category too long, a suggestion is made to work on articles beginning with a certain letter. The letter is changed daily.

The current focus is on articles beginning with: Q.

Limitations[change source]

If category names are over 100 characters, or contain special characters, the template may need to have "year" "month name" and "monthno" supplied.

Similarly if the category name does not follow the convention "Blah blah from December 2019".

Example[change source]

...

| monthno = 12
| month name = December
| year    = 2019
