Category in addition to gallery[edit]

Can the template be adjusted to handle categories as well as, or as an alternative to, galleries? Some people have only Commons categories and no galleries. For example, Category:Lady Grace Drummond-Hay, see

File:Bundesarchiv Bild 102-06551, Friedrichshafen, Journalisten vor Zeppelin-Start.jpg

Also, will there be a defined syntax for ages which are not certain, such as "56 to 58"? 84user (talk) 23:20, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

I would like to keep it plain and simple and stick to a single reference system for persons, the gallery pages. Every person who is worth a category of its own, is also worth a gallery of its own. A simple method to create the gallery without having to invest much time is redirecting it to the category. That's useful anyway for easy access to the content.
We can create a sub-template for values like "56 to 58" similar to the template {{other date}}, if that's necessary. --Slomox (talk) 01:07, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
