Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Displays standardized category navigation for occupations and nationalities, required by Wikipedia:Naming conventions (categories)#Occupation.

Adds a pair of standard parent categories:

  • [[Category:Nationality people by occupation|Profession]]
  • [[Category:Profession by nationality|Nationality]]

If the "Supercategory" parameter is used, the following categories will be generated instead:

  • [[Category:Nationality people by occupation|Profession]]
  • [[Category:Supercategory by nationality|Nationality]]

Self-checking

The template tests for the existence of [[Category:Profession by nationality]] or [[Category:Supercategory by nationality]], and alters its output as follows:

  1. If the "Supercategory" parameter is supplied, but [[Category:Supercategory by nationality]] does not exist, then [[Category:Supercategory]] will be used instead)
  2. When the "Supercategory" parameter is not supplied, the template tests for the existence of [[Category:Profession by nationality]]. If that does not exist, then [[Category:Profession]] will be used instead)

Usage

Example from Category:American writers:

{{Fooian fooers |Profession=Writers |Nationality=American |Country=United States}}

Another category may be added between the "nationality people by occupation" and this occupation category.

Example from Category:American diarists:

{{Fooian fooers |Profession=Diarists |Supercategory=Writers |Nationality=American |Country=United States}}

In most cases, should not be substituted.

Please note that this template may need to be modified for some categories, because some nationalities are listed as "People of Foo" instead of "Fooian". In these instances, the template may be substituted and edited in place.
