Description FrankLSF95 2009-08-25 05:13:54 UTC
See The template [[zh:Template:User Liangent]] will automate automatically categorise the page into a category( because of the <includeonly>. However, when the category page itself transcludes the template, it will be automate automatically categorised into its own category. This will cause an infinite recursion that the category will become a subcategory of itself. I know one of the solution is to remove that template, but since these occasions quite often appears, could you please fix this bug in order to prevent such occasions? Hope this will not take too much of your time. Thank you.

This isn't a bug, so far as I know. You should add an |nocategory=yes parameter so you can have the template appear on a page without categorizing it. There are plenty of examples, please email me if you cannot figure out how to do this.
