HideRRDBText -- -- Yes
HideFreqText Yes -- Yes
MoreText Yes (Note 1) Yes (Note 1) Yes (Note 1)


  • Note 1
    • Parameter MoreText exists as a parameter in the templates that invoke Text_CatGeneral, thus allowing a "pass-through" effect so that custom messages can be displayed uniformly in all templates and categories that use Text_CatGeneral.

  • Note 2
    • Parameter HideParent3 hides the value of "Parent3" which is a parameter that is not user-defined, but is automatically created by the template's logic. Please see Text_CatStateOtherFreq/doc for more information.

  • Note 3
    • Parameters TextHasNoParent and HideAllParents should be used only with the top-category for an entire category-tree; and should be used as a pair, not just one. Example: Category:Gateways.

  • Note 4
    • Parameter SubmittedBy should be used only when the category's articles are submitted only by administrators, not by regular members. Examples: Category:Gateways, Category:Legal
