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 Template:Ns:8 namespace.

Tracking category Message name Category inclusion criteria
Indexed pages(empty)index-categoryThe page has a __INDEX__ 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 pages(empty)noindex-categoryThe page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word __NOINDEX__ on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.
Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls(empty)duplicate-args-categoryThe page contains template calls that use duplicates of arguments, such as {{foo|bar=1|bar=2}} or {{foo|bar|1=baz}}.
Pages with too many expensive parser function calls(empty)expensive-parserfunction-categoryThe page uses too many expensive parser functions (like #ifexist). See Manual:$wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit.
Pages containing omitted template arguments(empty)post-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 exceeded(empty)post-expand-template-inclusion-categoryThe page size is bigger than $wgMaxArticleSize after expanding all the templates, so some templates were not expanded.
Hidden categories(empty)hidden-category-categoryThe category contains __HIDDENCAT__ in its page content, which prevents it from showing up in the category links box on pages by default.
Pages with broken file links(empty)broken-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 exceeded(empty)node-count-exceeded-categoryThe page exceeds the maximum node count.
Pages where expansion depth is exceeded(empty)expansion-depth-exceeded-categoryThe page exceeds the maximum expansion depth.
Pages with ignored display titles(empty)restricted-displaytitle-ignoredThe page has an ignored {{DISPLAYTITLE}} because it is not equivalent to the page's actual title.
Pages using invalid self-closed HTML tags(empty)deprecated-self-close-categoryThe page contains invalid self-closed HTML tags, such as <b/> or <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 loops(empty)template-loop-categoryThe page contains a template loop, ie. a template which calls itself recursively.
