Wiki Categories are purely conceptual groupings for organising the contents of a Wiki. Each page in a wiki site may belong to one or more Wiki categories. In order to mark a page for inclusion for a special category, just link to the category page from the page. As an example, consider a page describing an interesting idea you want to organize under an "Ideas" category:

...(content of an example page)
----
More in [CategoryIdeas]

The benefit of this linking is that others may follow your link to the Category Ideas page, and once there, can see all pages referring to Category Ideas with the referring pages plugin. Please be verbose with your category link; Back to ... or More in ... helps navigating pages more than just a hanging link at the end of a page. If you want to create more categories, feel free to do so. Just create a link to [[[CategoryYourNewCategory | [Category YourNewCategory]]. If each CategoryPage, itself, links to WikiCategory (this page), we can use the referring pages plugin again to list existing categories, and avoid editing this page everytime a new category is added. Yay for minimum maintenance.


Existing Categories

[[{ReferringPagesPluginInclude=Category*} | {ReferringPagesPlugin include='Category*'}]]
