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


This template should be placed on each "allbooks category". An allbooks category is associated with a subject category, Category:subject, and is automatically populated with all books that belong to either Category:subject or any descendant subject of that category. The name of the allbooks category is formed by appending suffix "/all books" to the name of the subject category, thus Category:subject/all books.

This template takes no parameters.

This template checks to make sure various associated pages are set up correctly for automatically populating allbooks categories. If it finds a problem, it displays a notice explaining the problem and suggesting how to fix it, with buttons to perform likely remedial actions.


  • Template {{Allbooks category}} itself contains only the interface to the functionality: it determines the associated subject page name, and passes that information on for further processing to template {{Allbooks category/core}}.
