Adding your page to categories Edit
To add a page to a category, insert the link
[[Category:Recipes]] into it (yes, include the double brackets).
Category page Edit
A category page consists of:
- editable text
- list of subcategories; how many there are is also displayed; if there are no subcategories the header and count are not shown.
- list of pages in the category, excluding subcategories and images; the number of items in this list is called the number of articles; if there are none the header is shown anyway, and "There are 0 articles in this category."
To create a category page, you must add a colon in front of the Category tag when you set up the page-creation link, to prevent the software from thinking you merely want to add the page you are working from to the category:
Placing the above text on working page will create the link you can use to edit your category page.
Links to categories Edit
You can create a link to a category page without adding the page to that category by using a colon before the word Category. Example: [[:Category:Recipes]] appears as Category:Recipes.
Existing categories Edit
You can see currently used categories at Special:Categories. This list is quite long though so it's not recommended to browse through it when searching for a category.
