Categorization in iskWiki! means creating new categories and merging articles into such categories to cater search needs.

Overview

The objectives of article categorization are the following:

  1. To incorporate all article into one or more subject;
  2. To enable quick-search by looking into pages with the same subject and interest.

When to categorize articles

An article could be categorized specifically, when it do not have its category. An article with existing category can further be categorized so whenever its subject appears to be appropriate into multiple categories. There are existing number of categories] here on iskWiki!.

Categorizing articles

Remember that articles and templates are very much different from one another, so maybe we should put distinction when we are dealing with categories.

Articles

To categorize an article, the main syntax here would be:

  [[Category:your category name here]]

The variable word your category name here would be retrieved on lists of categories. Choose any of the following categories. However, if a category is not existing and still it follows your article preference, you may still continue using such category name. Remember that the title of your article will still be included on the chosen category.

For example, if you want to include an article into No Category category,

  [[Category:No Category]]


and naturally, such category is not existing, it will show you red link like this:
