[This is a first attempt to grab the use of categories; it is sloppy for now, but I will work on understanding it. I did some maintenance in this respect on the Persons, Methods, Concepts and PhDMembers entries; the rest will follow. --Govert Valkenburg 12:45, 8 Oct 2005 (CEST)]
One major tool of keeping hold of the contents of a Wiki is the use of categories. As to assign an entry to a category, simply add [[Category:MyCategory|MyAlphabet]] to the text. The MyAlphabet argument is optional, but needed e.g. in cases of personal names. Generally the surname is to be typed here, as Bruno Latour would otherwise be indexed under B rather than L on the Category:persons page.
From now on, the page will automatically be referred to on the corresponding category page. It doesn't really matter where you put this tag, but it is the WTMC-Wiki-Convention (from now on: WWC :-) to put this on the first line of the text.
See the Categories page for existing categories. Don't invent categories unless necessary...
Referring to a category page is done by putting [[:Category:MyCategory|MyText]] in your entry source. Note that the fist colon is essential, as otherwise the entry you are editing is assigned to the category, rather than referring to it. The MyText argument is optional, but recommended as to avoid ugly link appearances.
