The following, however, may be used to make the template more informative:

type[edit]


Setting type to one of the following values adds a preset note as to which type of template the category (but not necessarily its subcategories) is meant to contain. The values are:
  • ambox
  • category header
  • category heading
  • catheader
  • cat header
  • cathead
  • campaignbox
  • conversion
  • external link
  • formatting
  • function
  • infobox
  • module
  • meta
  • navigation
  • navigational
  • navbox
  • user
  • userbox
If type is set to something other than one of these values, the default "The pages listed in this category are templates" note appears unmodified.
type alone
{{Template category |type=sidebar}}

topic[edit]


Use topic to add a default description ending "...relating to topic", where topic is usually a wikilink to the main article associated with the category
topic alone
{{Template category |topic=Battletech}}
type, topic
{{Template category |type=meta |topic=Battletech}}

description[edit]


Use description if a customised description is needed instead of – or, if topic also used, to follow – the default description above.
type, topic, description
{{Template category
| type = navbox
| topic = Battletech
| description = <br />{{small|For templates relating specifically to Battletech}}
}}
description alone
{{Template category |description=This text is supplied by the ''description'' parameter.}}

help[edit]


Use help to replace the instructions on adding a template to the category (second paragraph of the "Further template category notes" section):
replace help text
{{Template category |help=This text supplied by the ''help'' parameter.}}
To omit the default instructions, set help to no:
omit help text
{{Template category |help=no}}
