Categoreis and subcategories[edit]

Thank you for the friendly welcome message. The help system seems fairly complete. I find it much more useful to click the "edit" section of more complete entries and just look at the code to figure things out, but I know that doesn't work for some people. I do have a question that may be in there somewhere and I missed it. How are categories and subcategories created? It seems to me that one of the sub-categories within People ought to be "publishers." Otherwise, this seems fun and to be growing nicely. -- Gene

Categories are created like any page, by making links to them or going to their pages. However, to get the links in the right place, you place the special tag [[Category:YourCategoryName]] into the article that you want to be in the new category (or [[Category:YourCategoryName|Optional String To Sort By]] if you don't want it sorted in the list by the article name). This will create a link at the bottom. If it's red, then you can create the category page by clicking it, editing and saving the resulting page - your article page will then be present on there. If the link is blue, then it already existed, and your article page will be added to it. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:00, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
