Adds a game (sub-)category to the proper format and finds the page Category Sort key (e.g Arma 2: Editing gets sorted as EDITING).
Uses {{Name}}, {{Concat}} and {{GameCategory/SortKey}}.

This template is used on these pages.



  • game: game id, see {{Name}}
  • subCategory: (Optional, default empty) sub-category (e.g Editing) - for ≥ Arma Reforger can be up to 5 sub-levels
  • link: (Optional, default empty - named argument) y to make it a link to the category
  • text: (Optional, default empty - named argument) requires link. The link's text (otherwise, the category name will be used) - activates link as well
  • sortKey: (Optional, default {{uc:{{PAGENAME}}}} (see {{GameCategory/SortKey}}) or {{SUBPAGENAME}} (for ≥ Arma Reforger) - named argument) category sort key - will be uppercased
