This template is for use on Category pages, to refer to the primary article associated with this category, which most of the time, describes the entire set containing the category.

This template is not a replacement for adding a category to the main article. The main article of a category should always have the category set. Furthermore the main article should always have a space as sortkey so that it appears on top of a category. Example: the article Internet should have the category [[Category:Internet| ]].

Normal usage (uses category name for wiki link):

If the name of the main article is different than the name of the category — for example: if the main article for Category:Dead or Alive is Dead or Alive (series) — then you will need to use one parameter to specify the article:

Multiple articles

Simply append more articles as additional arguments (up to five):

Pages which aren't articles
