How to use categories

This wiki is using a very flexible but simple categorizing system to keep everything properly organized.

1. Adding a page to an existing category

To add a page to an existing category simply add a link to the relevant category page. For example, to mark page MyPage as a child of category MyCategory, just add a link to MyCategory from MyPage. This will automatically add MyPage to the list of pages belonging to that category. Category links are put by convention at the end of the page, but the position of these links does not affect their behavior.

2. Adding a subcategory to an existing category

To create a hierarchy of categories, you can follow the same instructions to add pages to categories. For example, to mark category Category2 as a child (or subcategory) of another category Category1, just add a link to Category1 in Category2. This will automatically add Category2 to the list of Category1's children.

3. Creating new categories

To start a new category just create a page containing {{category}}. This will mark the page as a special category page and will output a list of pages belonging to the category. Category page names start by convention with the word Category but you can also create categories without following this convention. To add a new category to the master list of categories just add a link from it to CategoryCategory.

4. Browsing categories

To browse the categories available on your wiki you can start from CategoryCategory. If all pages and subcategories are properly linked as described above, you will be able to browse the whole hierarchy of categories starting from this page.

I. Create New Categories

Categories are normal wikipages, only two things are different:
  1. their pagename must start with "Category" (like "CategoryWiki", "Category Category", "Category Users" [the last two without the space, of course] etc.) and
  2. their page should contain {{category}} somewhere.
Example: You want to create a "Category Users" in your wiki? Simply create a page with this name (without the space) and edit it. You can add anything you want to that page (a description of the category or its purpose is a good idea), the only thing you should add is {{category}} because that is what will make the pages that belong to that category visible!

II. Using Categories

Mentioning a category anywhere on a wikipage will include the page in the mentioned category. This makes it easy to:
Example: CategoryWiki, CategoryDocumentation. Note that these two are the only categories in which we want this page, so all other names are "masked", i.e. their names are divided with a space ("Category Category", "Category Users")!
Example: Category Users. This page won't show up there, because you won't find the name "written together" on this page.
Since categories are wikipages, the procedures above will work for them, too. This could be used to create a hierarchy of categories.
Example: To make "CategoryDocumentation" a subcategory of "Category Category", simply add the latter name (without the space) to the former page. If you replace "Category Category" with "CategoryWiki" , the "CategoryDocumentation" will be a subcategory of the latter one. If you remove "CategoryWiki", "CategoryDocumentation" will have no parent category.

III. Browsing Categories

You can directly access "Category Category" by clicking on the link "Categories" in Wikka's top navigation bar. The main purpose of this category is to serve as a parent for your own categories. Simply add them to "Category Category" as mentioned in point II.

IV. Standard Convention to Place Categories

To end with this is the standard convention to place the categories (both the wiki code and the result):
----
CategoryWiki - CategoryDocumentation


CategoryWiki - CategoryDocumentation
