Shortcut: COM:CP or COM:CAT Category pages on Commons are pages in the Category namespace. They provide a brief summary of the content in the category, and allow users to find related categories. MediaWiki also automatically generates thumbnails of the files contained in the category.

Categories are useful as indiscriminately large "containers" of images on a topic.
