[edit] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

Usage

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. A missing message page will give a red-link to the wiki-page where the message should be written. {{Null}} can be used for an intentionally bl ank item.

Also the category will need to follow the naming convention "Blah blah from April 2020". (See #Limitations for more information.)

If a red lined counter category is shown populate it with {{Counter category}}.

Parameter toc

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

Parameter hidden

  • hidden != n - The category will be hidden.

Examples

Focus

{{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 April 2020 (2020-04) to enable us to work through the backlog more systematically. It is a member of Category:test stubs.
silly articles should be deleted


Focus letter

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: I.

Toc

{{Monthly clean up category
 | type    = silly articles
 | message = silly articles should be made sensible

 | cat     =

}}

Limitations

If category names are over 100 chars 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 April 2020".

Example

...

| monthno = 04
| month name = April
| year    = 2020
