Categories, un software trate de MediaWiki, provide automatic índex, quel es util quam index de contente.

Tu posse categorise págines e images de adjuntente un o plu Categories puntales por li contente text. Ti-ci puntales crea links al li fin del págine, quel link tu al un list de omni págines in ti-ci categorie, quel fa it simplic paste de relatent articules.


Each of the pages in the Category namespace represents a so-called category, a grouping of related pages, and contains an index for the pages of its category. For example, this page belongs to "Category:Help ". If you open the category page, you will see a link to this page there.

When a page belongs to one or more categories, these categories appear at the bottom of the page (or in the upper-right corner, depending on the skin being used).

Li categorie págine consiste e 2 partes:

  • in li comense, un optional part posse contener text, quel posse esser modificar, quam omni altri págines,
  • in li fine, un sempre assister, automaticmen generat alfabetic list de omni págines in ti-ci categorie in li form de un link. In facte, in li Unicode sortit órdine.

Por assignar un categorie a un págine simplicmen adjunte li linkt[[Categorie:Categorie nomine]] a li wikitext del págine. Li usual plazza por adjunter it es al fine de págine.

Por link un categorie intern un págine quam un normal wiki-link (sin adjunter li págine in li categorie), pre prefixe li link name con un cólin. Por example: [[:Categorie:Ne in ti categorie]]

Nov categories posse esser crear ante assigna un págine a it, in li identic metode quam un altri normal págine.

Individual wikis may have their own top-level categories, such as Category:Contents on Wikipedia.

Por un complet list de omni categories, quel have min. un págine, vide Special:Categories.

Por un complet list de omni creat/modificat categories, quel ne have alquel págines, vide Special:Allpages/Category: (vide li colon al fine).

Adjunter un págine a un categorie

Por adjunter un págine o uploadat images a un categorie simplicmen modificar li págine e adjunter ti-ci text: (u Nomine es li nomine del categorie, quel tu besona adjunter it).


Any number of Category tags may be added to the page and the page will be listed in all of them. Category tags, along with interwiki language links placed in the sidebar, are usually added at the very bottom of the page for the convenience of other editors.

On a categorised page, categories are displayed in the Categories: box strictly in the order they appear in the wikitext.

If $wgUseCategoryBrowser is set to true, under the first list each category is listed again, breadcrumb-style, with all its parent categories, sorted alphabetically. (At least in MediaWiki 1.18.2) if a category is a subcategory of more than one parent, both hierarchies will be listed, but the tagged category will be stripped off all but one of these. This creates the potential for what appear to be duplicate entries if a category with multiple parents and one of its parents are both tagged on a page. For example suppose Maryanne is a subcategory of both Mary and Anne. If a page tags categories Maryanne and Anne then the Category breadcrumbs will show

Mary -> Maryanne

"Anne" appears to be duplicated, but what is meant is

Anne -> Maryanne
Mary -> Maryanne

Order clave

By default, a page is sorted within a category under the first letter of its name — without the namespace. Also, MediaWiki groups accented characters separately from their unaccented version, so pages starting by À, Á, Ä, will be listed under separate headings, instead of under heading A. (If you have shell access, these defaults can be changed using $wgCategoryCollation .)

A sort key specifies under which letter heading, and where in the category list, the page will appear. You can add a sort key by placing it inside the tag after a pipe character. For example, the tag below will add the page under heading "S".


Sive sive ne order claves es un case-sensitive depends on your configuration settings. The order of the sections within a category follows the Unicode sort order. The sort key does not change the page title displayed in the category.

Spaces and other characters are perfectly valid.

See Help:Sorting for further information on category sorting.

Crear un categorie págine

Categories exist even if their page has not been created, but these categories are isolated from others and serve little purpose for organisation or navigation.

A category is created by creating a page in the Category: namespace. A category page can be created the same way as other wiki pages (see Help:Starting a new page ); just add "Category:" before the page title.

To avoid extra work, try searching within your wiki before creating a new category. The list of all categories can be found in "Special págines" in the "utensiles" box of the sidebar.

Managing the category hierarchy

Categories may belong to other categories in a hierarchy. Since category pages are much like any other page, a Category tag may be added to the bottom of a category page.

It is a good idea to organise all categories into a hierarchy with a single top level category. The category structure can take the form of a tree with separate branches, but more often will have a graph structure. Generally, there should be a contiguous chain of parent-child links between each category and the top level category.

Category tree

Since MediaWiki 1.31, CategoryTree extension is packaged by default, allowing Special:CategoryTree and ‎<categorytree> to provide a tree-like structure display for the categories.

Celat categories

The categories that a page is in are normally listed at the bottom of the page. In MediaWiki 1.13+, a category can be hidden from this list by adding the magic word "__HIDDENCAT__" to the category page.

Users can choose to see hidden categories in a separate "Categories ocultat" list, by checking "Monstrar categories ne visibil" in the "Appearance" section of Special:Preferences.

Hidden categories are automatically added to Category:Hidden categories. This category is specified in the system message MediaWiki:Hidden-category-category.

Adjunter un link a un categorie

To create a link to a category, use a leading colon before the category name (without this colon, the current page would be added to the category):


To change the link text, write the text inside the link tag after a pipe:

[[:Category:Help|Help category]]Help category

Redirect pages that redirect to categories must also use the colon, otherwise they will be added to the category instead of redirecting.

Categories and templates (transcluded pages)

If you add [[Category:Cats]] inside a template (a transcluded page), both the template and pages which transclude this template will be categorised as Cats.

  • If you want only the template to be categorised, you should ensure to write category marker inside <noinclude> tags.
  • If you want only the pages which uses the template to be categorised, but not the template itself, you should ensure to write category marker inside <includeonly> tags.

Due to caching issues, editing categories applied through templates may take a while to be visible everywhere. You can perform a null edit on a page to update immediately its categories.

Redirecter un categorie

Like normal wiki pages, category pages can be redirected to other normal or category pages. However, this is not recommended, as pages categorised in redirected categories do not get categorised in the target category (phab:T5311). Some Wikimedia sites use a "category redirect" template to mark redirected categories, allowing manual or automated cleanup of pages categorised there.

Traciet categories

Certain syntax issues, such as a broken image link, or too many expensive parser functions, can cause a page to be added to a tracking category. See Help:Tracking categories for details.

Renaming a category

If you move a category, since redirect will not work for categorising, all category tags will be wrong, so you have to fix them.
