Description

Here's an idea from User:Kerry Raymond:

A lot of Wikipedia articles have {{commonscat}} templates or some other way of linking to a category on Commons. (These links are also available through Wikidata in some cases.) When those are available, it's likely that a user who wants to add an image will want to see the images in this category. Is it possible to display those by default in the image search box?

This could plausibly be done as a gadget, but it doesn't belong in VisualEditor-MediaWiki as it's specific to a particular wiki.
