Usage[edit]

Based on the as {{cat header}}, with a notice for the portal.


{{cat with portal header
| image= default.png
| summary = text
| topic = topicname
| portal = portalname
}}
  1. Change text to a summary of the topic (e.g. taken from the topic page's intro). Do not use bold or italics, as it will clash with the template's formatting.
  2. Change default.png to your preferred free image from Appropedia, if there is one.
  3. Change portalname and categoryname to the category you want to link to. Usually this will be the same as the page you're linking from, but not always.

E.g. on Category:Appropriate technology, we can use:

{{cat with portal header
| image= Completedsheller.gif
| summary = Appropriate technology is technology that is fitting for the context it is intended for - including environmentally, culturally and economically.
| topic = Appropriate technology
| portal = Appropriate technology
}}

which displays as:


Completedsheller.gif   
Appropriate technology is technology that is fitting for the context it is intended for - including environmentally, culturally and economically. Read about this topic at Appropriate technology.

  • Note: I was going to use [[:Category:{{{PAGENAME}}}|'''{{{PAGENAME}}} category''']] but I thought there might be times when the category name mightn't be the same as the key page. --Chriswaterguy 07:18, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
