Template:Sandbox other/doc

Usage

This template can be used on template documentation pages to ensure that any given template sandbox or template documentation does not populate its main template's category(ies).

This template has two unnamed parameters, |1= and |2=. Near the bottom of a /doc page where the categories are usually placed, install this template as follows:

<includeonly>{{sandbox other||
<!-- Categories go below this line; interwikis go to Wikidata -->
[[Category:(first category)]]
[[Category:(second category)]]
(more categories if needed)

}}</includeonly>
  • Usage of an empty first parameter (two pipes together, ||, at the end of the first line of code above) essentially means |1=(do nothing) and will not allow the sandbox page to populate the listed categories.
  • Note that the closing template braces (}}) are placed just before the </includeonly> tag. This is the same as |2=(category comment and categories). In "long hand" it may appear as follows:
<includeonly>{{sandbox other|1=<!-- keep sandbox out of categories -->|2=
<!-- Categories go below this line; interwikis go to Wikidata -->
[[Category:(first category)]]
[[Category:(second category)]]
(more categories if needed)

}}</includeonly>
