This template offers a multiple choice for defining the type category of a file page. It can also automatically categorize a page under that category.


  1. The selected type from the following values (no parameter name and values are case insensitive):
    • character portrait
    • enemy portrait
    • fan art
    • holomap image
    • icon
    • ingame screenshot
    • item image
    • mbox icon
    • misc game
    • misc web
    • movie screenshot
    • package
    • promotional
    • savegame
    • scene map
    • theme icon
    • user avatar
    • any other (non)empty value defaults to: unknown
  • nocat: Whether or not to suppress categorization under the chosen category (defaults to false, which means auto categorization).

Note: more category values may be added, provided the category pages in question are also created and organized into a logical category structure.


{{Infobox File/type|value}}


Any of the above values may be used like this:

{{Infobox File/type|icon}}
{{Infobox File/type|character portrait}}
{{Infobox File/type|item image}}
{{Infobox File/type|user avatar}}
Icon [list all]
Character Portrait [list all]
Item Image [list all]
User Avatar [list all]

The case of the value is not important:

{{Infobox File/type|uSER aVATar}}
User Avatar [list all]

You may leave the "type" undefined (which would raise the Files of unknown type maintenance task) by not specifying any valid value, so these all have the same result:

{{Infobox File/type}}
{{Infobox File/type|}}
{{Infobox File/type|document}}
{{Infobox File/type|word}}
{{Infobox File/type|pdf}}
{{Infobox File/type|monospaced}}
{{Infobox File/type|arial}}
{{Infobox File/type|savegame}}
unknown [list all]

The nocat parameter may be used to suppress automatic categorization like this (any value will do):

{{Infobox File/type|icon|nocat=true}}

This would render the same result as the first example above, but would not automatically categorize under Category:Icons. This feature works both on valid values and the maintenance task mentioned above.
