This template is the project banner for WikiProject Catholicism. The template is to be placed on talk pages (only) of the articles identified as being within the Project's scope (at or near the top of the talkpage).

This template automatically assigns the category Category:WikiProject Catholicism articles to the articles' talk pages. This category and other associated Project categories are used in various ways by the Project in the overall management of the Project's workload.

This template contains optional parameters, details of usage are given below.

Usage instructions[edit]

General syntax options for this template are as follows:

{{WikiProject Catholicism
|Canon= <!-- or |canon= -->

The parameters are named, and (if used) must be entered exactly as-is (note, all are lowercase).

The class and importance parameters are associated with the Project's article assessment and rating scheme. These parameters add a category to the talkpage, which category depends on the values chosen.

Parameter values[edit]


An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Catholicism}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Catholicism|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Catholicism articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Catholicism articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Catholicism articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Catholicism articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Catholicism articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Catholicism articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Catholicism articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Catholicism articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Catholicism articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class Catholicism articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Catholicism articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Catholicism articles) Disambiguation page Disambig

Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Catholicism articles) Redirect page Redirect 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Catholicism articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Catholicism articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Catholicism articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Catholicism articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Catholicism articles)  ??? 


An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Catholicism}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Catholicism|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project:

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Catholicism articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Catholicism articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Catholicism articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Catholicism articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Catholicism articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Catholicism articles  ??? 

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.


  • canon – set |canon=yes if the article is supported by the Canon law Task Force.
  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to populate Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of Catholicism.
  • auto – This parameter is for the use of bots and indicates that the article has been automatically rated:
    • |auto=length – based on the length of the article
    • |auto=inherit – because one or more other projects use this class
    • |auto=yes (or |auto=stub), in conjunction with |class=stub – as Stub-Class because it uses a stub template
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for John Doe, use |listas=Doe, John so that the talk page will show up in the D's and not the J's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProjectBannerShell}} or {{WikiProjectBanners}}.
