Usage

If using a large, graphical template produces odd layout problems, like the excessive white space shown on the right of this screenshot, then switch to a different sister template.

This template is similar to {{Commons category}} but shows 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 categories, and allows changing width or floating the box to the left.

Usage:   {{Commons category multi | topic1 | topic2 | align=left | width=20em}}
Usage:   {{Commons category multi | topic1 | topic2 | topic3}}
Usage:   {{Commons category multi | topic1 | topic2 | topic3 | topic4}}
Usage:   {{Commons category multi | topic1 | t2 | t3 | t4 | t5 | t6}}

The template will state "Wikimedia Commons has media related to (category):..." and then display the first 2 topic names in bold/italics as "topic1 or topic2" (as links). The optional topics 3 or 4 would be on the next line ("or topic3 or topic4"). Optional topics 5 and 6 would be on a third line.

Other optional parameters:

  • align=left: shifts the box to the left margin (default: right)
  • width=20em: can be added to widen the box for longer words (such as by "width=24em").

Note that the topic names should exist as category names in Wikimedia Commons (edited using a Wikimedia login name).

Location

N Do not place this template in a section all by itself.

N Do not place this template in a section containing columns.

In articles, this template should normally be placed at the top of the ==External links== section, if one exists, or at the top of the last section on the page, if no external links section exists. See Wikipedia:Wikimedia sister projects#Where to place links for more information and alternatives.
