Tracking categories

Jump to: navigation, search
 
This page lists tracking categories which are automatically populated by the MediaWiki software. Their names can be changed by altering the relevant system messages in the {{ns:8}} namespace.
Tracking category Message name Category inclusion criteria
Indexed pagesindex-categoryThe page has a
<nowiki>__INDEX__</nowiki>
on it (and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed), and hence is indexed by robots where it normally wouldn't be.
Noindexed pagesnoindex-categoryThe page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word
<nowiki>__NOINDEX__</nowiki>
on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.
Pages using duplicate arguments in template callsduplicate-args-categoryThe page contains template calls that use duplicates of arguments, such as
<nowiki>{{foo|bar=1|bar=2}}</nowiki>
or
<nowiki>{{foo|bar|1=baz}}</nowiki>
.
Pages with too many expensive parser function callsexpensive-parserfunction-categoryThe page uses too many expensive parser functions (like
#ifexist
). See Manual:$wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit.
Pages containing omitted template argumentspost-expand-template-argument-categoryThe page is bigger than
$wgMaxArticleSize
after expanding a template argument (something in triple braces, like
{{{Foo}}}
).
Pages where template include size is exceededpost-expand-template-inclusion-categoryThe page size is bigger than
$wgMaxArticleSize
after expanding all the templates, so some templates were not expanded.
Hidden categorieshidden-category-categoryThe category contains
<nowiki>__HIDDENCAT__</nowiki>
in its page content, which prevents it from showing up in the category links box on pages by default.
Pages with broken file linksbroken-file-categoryThe page contains a broken file link (a link to embed a file when the file does not exist).
Pages where node count is exceedednode-count-exceeded-categoryThe page exceeds the maximum node count.
Pages where expansion depth is exceededexpansion-depth-exceeded-categoryThe page exceeds the maximum expansion depth.
Pages with ignored display titlesrestricted-displaytitle-ignoredThe page has an ignored
<nowiki>{{DISPLAYTITLE}}</nowiki>
because it is not equivalent to the page's actual title.
Pages using invalid self-closed HTML tagsdeprecated-self-close-categoryThe page contains invalid self-closed HTML tags, such as
&lt;b/>
or
&lt;span/>
. The behavior of these will change soon to be consistent with the HTML5 specification, so their use in wikitext is deprecated.
Pages with template loopstemplate-loop-categoryThe page contains a template loop, ie. a template which calls itself recursively.
