This documentation is transcluded from Template:User category/doc.

Adds categories to Category:User categories with optional sort key. The category can be changed by using cat=category_name (without the "Category:" prefix). The main purpose is to categorize and add __HIDDENCAT__ in one step. It also allows categorization bots to easily ignore user categories. User galleries should not use this as they go in Category:User galleries. See Commons:User-specific galleries, templates and categories

The template automatically sets the following categories:


{{User category |1= }}
