How to add Categories to a Codex Article

Articles in Codex need to be assigned Categories. Articles are categorized initially with two categories, a parent or main category and a sub-category.

As part of the Codex Cleanup Week Activities, we are asking volunteers to help us set the main category for articles within the Codex.

The following is the step-by-step process of how to assign categories to an article.

1. From this page, choose a main section to work on from this list:

2. Under each category title is an example of the category link to be used. Copy that example.

3 From the articles and subcategory articles under the main category, go down through the list and click an article link to go to that article.

4. At the top of that article page click on the Edit tab to edit the article and add the category tags.

5. In the Edit window, move to the bottom of the page and paste in the category link.

Note: If there is a Category already defined for an article, just add your Category information on the top of the list of category links. Please check to see if the category you are about to add is there. If it is, back out of the document and go to the next one.

6. At the bottom of the page, click the Show preview button and check the bottom of the article to make sure you see the following, which may include other categories:

Categories: Design and Layout

7. Click the Save page button to save your changes.

8. Return to this page and go down the list to the next article in that category.

9. If you complete a category section, please edit this list and mark the date you completed the task, per examples on this page. And THANK YOU!

This is tedious work, but categorizing the documents on this site will help navigation and users to find the information they need, so it is very important work. Thank you.
