I know that the reverse is possible (adding a category to a template, so each page using the template gets the category) but is this possible?

I basically want to add a "{{Navigation}}" template to

If you want a template to display in a category, just edit the category to add the template. 70.24.251.208 08:20, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yami's wanting the reverse. Basically, you need a bot program to do it. Google Auto Wiki Browser (AWB). It's the most user friendly for simple page edits (like what you are wanting), or you can give all the details here as precise as you can and hope that someone reading has the time to do it for you.

By clicking on which link? I was also looking for something like this. —This unsigned comment is by Sam Wang (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
It is possible to categorize all pages that using a particular template by adding this to the template (suppose you want to add the category Incomplete Pages/Stubs):
<includeonly>[[Category:Incomplete Pages/Stubs|{{PAGENAME}}]]</includeonly>

"You need a bot" basically means it has do be done one by one, there is no automated way.--PedroM 18:43, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Looks like a relatively simple task. I've left a message on your duelmasters talk page, so if you still want the help just let me know. Cqm  21:53, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Rappy and Cam for understanding what I was asking for. I did look at AWB, but I really did not understand most of it. I currently contacted Wikia Staff for a blot flag, and with Cam, should be getting it set up. Thanks. Yami Michael 01:45, June 12, 2012 (UTC)
