People use categories to make it easier for other people on a wiki to find articles. But it's sometimes hard to make a good structure. Below you can find all information to do it right.

Adding CategoriesEdit

Categories shows all pages in a category. It's important, because people can find the articles better and the wiki has a better structure when there are categories. On the right side you find a section categories. Tick in the category name and click on enter. After that you have to publish to add them to the page.

Add Categories to CategoriesEdit

To make a good structure of you categories, you have to make first the last category in the structure. Add the category to a page. After that you can go to the category page. Click on edit and add also there a category. Now you can go to that category and you see the category shows the category you add to the category. You can do this hundred times.

StructureEdit

Make sure you add pages to the good categories, otherwise it'll confuse people. It's also important to make clear categories so people can add them easily. Also it's easier if the categories don't have long names.

Make category pages specialEdit

On category pages you can add texts, but also things like pictures. It's nice to do this on the biggest and most important categories. You can write something about the category or explain something of it.

If you have questions about categories or want help with something please go to my message wall to ask me about it. You can also ask staff, ask an admin on this wiki, go to the forum or ask in the chat.
