The "Template:Commons category" links to a "Category:" name in the Wikimedia Commons repository (edited using a Wikimedia login name). If that category name is misspelled or missing, the link will still appear "blue" even though the link will fail. Check spelling of names carefully.


{{Commons category}} puts link-box with current page's name as the category.
{{Commons category|catnam}} puts link-box connecting title catnam.
{{Commons category|catnam|shownam}} puts link-box showing the title shownam.
{{Commons category |catnam|position=left}} floats link-box to the left side, as option to align box to left-margin.

The two parameters catnam and shownam (1 & 2) are optional, and are intended for cases where the Commons category name is different from the Wikipedia page name. The first parameter is the name of the corresponding category on the Wikimedia Commons, without the "Category:" prefix. If this first parameter is used, then the template will display the Commons category name, which may be confusing to readers. This text can be overridden by the second parameter, where the Wikipedia page name would typically be used.

The parameter "position=" accepts one value, left, that moves the box to the left side, instead of the default right side. More information may be found at {{Side box}}.

For example, on the Polar bear page,

{{Commons category|Ursus maritimus|Polar bears}}
produces a link to Commons:Category:Ursus maritimus displayed as "Polar bears".
