Template:Category maintenance/doc

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

Placed in the category description, the template adds a (collapsed) box with links to find media to add or remove from the category.

New fields should be added if needed. The various links added by users in this template can be used to develop tools for category maintenance and eventually replace it.
