-- -- -- CATEGORY HANDLER -- -- -- -- This module implements the Template:Category handler template in Lua, with a few improvements: all -- -- namespaces and all namespace aliases are supported, and namespace names are detected -- -- automatically for the local wiki. This module requires Module:Namespace detect and -- -- Module:Yesno to be available on the local wiki. It can be configured for different wikis -- -- by altering the values in the "cfg" table. -- -- --

-- Configuration data -- -- Language-specific parameter names and values can be set here. --

local cfg = {}

-- The following config values set the names of parameters that suppress categorisation. They are used -- with Module:Yesno, and work as follows: -- -- cfg.nocat: -- Result of yesno(args[cfg.nocat]) Effect -- true Categorisation is suppressed -- false Categorisation is allowed, and the blacklist check is skipped -- nil Categorisation is allowed -- -- cfg.categories: -- Result of yesno(args[cfg.categories]) Effect -- true Categorisation is allowed, and the blacklist check is skipped -- false Categorisation is suppressed -- nil Categorisation is allowed cfg.nocat = 'nocat' cfg.categories = 'categories'

-- The parameter name for the legacy "category2" parameter. This skips the blacklist if set to the -- cfg.category2Yes value, and suppresses categorisation if present but equal to anything other than -- cfg.category2Yes or cfg.category2Negative. cfg.category2 = 'category2' cfg.category2Yes = 'yes' cfg.category2Negative = '¬'

-- cfg.subpage is the parameter name to specify how to behave on subpages. cfg.subpageNo is the value to -- specify to not categorise on subpages; cfg.only is the value to specify to only categorise on subpages. cfg.subpage = 'subpage' cfg.subpageNo = 'no' cfg.subpageOnly = 'only'

-- The parameter for data to return in all namespaces. cfg.all = 'all'

-- The parameter name for data to return if no data is specified for the namespace that is detected. This -- must be the same as the cfg.other parameter in Module:Namespace detect. cfg.other = 'other'

-- The parameter name used to specify a page other than the current page; used for testing and -- demonstration. This must be the same as the parameter in Module:Namespace detect. = 'page'

-- The categorisation blacklist. Pages that match Lua patterns in this list will not be categorised. -- (However, see the explanation of cfg.nocat, cfg.categories and cfg.category2 for some exceptions.) -- If the namespace name has a space in, it must be written with an underscore, e.g. "Wikipedia_talk". -- Other parts of the title can have either underscores or spaces. cfg.blacklist = {

   '^Main Page$', -- don't categorise the main page.

   -- Don't categorise the following pages or their subpages.
   '^Wikipedia:Cascade%-protected items$',
   '^Wikipedia:Cascade%-protected items/.*$',
   '^User:UBX$', -- The userbox "template" space.

   -- Don't categorise subpages of these pages, but allow
   -- categorisation of the base page.
   '^Wikipedia:Template messages/.+$',

   '/[aA]rchive' -- Don't categorise archives.
