  • If a field name is listed in the Prerequisites column, it is a prerequisite for the field to the left.

Categories

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]]

If the "Supercategory2" parameter is also used, the following categories will be generated instead:

  • [[Category:Nationality people by occupation|Profession]]
  • [[Category:Supercategory by nationality|Nationality]]
  • [[Category:Supercategory2 by nationality|Nationality]]

Self-checking

The template tests for the existence of [[Category:Profession by nationality]] or [[Category:Supercategory by nationality]] or [[Category:Supercategory2 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. If the "Supercategory" and "Supercategory2" parameters are both supplied, but neither [[Category:Supercategory by nationality]] nor [[Category:Supercategory2 by nationality]] exists, then [[Category:Supercategory]] will be used instead)
  3. When neither the "Supercategory" or "Supercategory2" parameters supplied, the template tests for the existence of [[Category:Profession by nationality]]. If that does not exist, then [[Category:Profession]] will be used instead)

Examples

Example from Category:American writers:

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

Supercategory

The Supercategory parameter allows another category to be added between the "nationality people by occupation" and this occupation category. This for occupations which are a subset of another ocupation.

Example from Category:American diarists:

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

Example from Category:Irish autobiographers:

{{Fooian fooers |Profession=Autobiographers |Nationality=Irish | Country=Ireland |Supercategory=Biographers}}

Example from Category:German civil engineers:

{{Fooian fooers |Profession=civil engineers |Nationality=German |Country=Germany |Supercategory=engineers}}

Supercategory2

The Supercategory2 parameter is for use when an occupation is an intersection of two other occupations.

Example from Category:British film score composers:

{{fooian fooers |Profession=Film score composers |Nationality=British |Supercategory=film people |Supercategory2=composers |Country=United Kingdom}}

Example from Category:Irish magazine editors:

{{Fooian fooers |Profession=magazine editors |Nationality=Irish |Country=Ireland |Supercategory=editors |Supercategory2=magazine people}}

Substitution

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". One such case is Northern Ireland: see {{Fooers from Northern Ireland}}

In other instances, the template may be substituted and edited in place.
