Purpose—be an efficient typing saver 
thereby maximizing the editing time of wiki contributing editors creating new pages.

This template takes up to 16 category names and pipesorts them according to the name or string given as the first argument (perameter). Thus it generates a string of [[Category:{{{2}}}|{{{1}}}]] [[Category:{{{3}}}|{{{1}}}]]... [[Category:{{{16|{{{1}}}]] declarations, that is most useful inside template or category space.

  • Duplication of another page's category requires merely navigation to the page, swiping the category strings off the page category lists, and returning to paste them into this template.
  • The swiped category names will already be separated by pipe characters, leaving little to do, save close the curly braces, and choose a first perameter (normally the Help:magic word: {{PAGENAME}} is best—be careful not to enclose any leading spaces!)
  • If only one argument is given, the template treats that as a category name, and automatically pipetricks the inclusion to {{PAGENAME}}.
no newlines are permitted else the page links will be broken.
