Re: Categories.

They're great!

(But confusing, sometimes, esp. when you start w/ thinking too much about it...)

so, if you write an article, and add [[Category:Category name]] at the end, or even inside the text, it gets categorized automatically.

you get nice stuff like this: http://www.newmars.com/wiki/index.php?t … &rcid=1044 where you can click further down the tree (fairly empty tree, till testing stuff)

But what I don't get... when for instance I go here: http://www.newmars.com/wiki/index.php/Mars and at the bottom i see: "category: planets" ... why is that link red?  :? it isn't empty....

Hmm...  It seems the New Mars wiki could find some use as a pathfinder.  Much easier to build than an encyclopedia, and the wiki format could be used to expand on information unavailable elsewhere. 

BTW: Categories and articles can have duplicate names, and categories can also include reference links to articles.

But what I don't get... when for instance I go here: http://www.newmars.com/wiki/index.php/Mars and at the bottom i see: "category: planets" ... why is that link red?  :? it isn't empty....

It isn't red any more.  I had one do that to me, too.  I finally made it quit by re-saving the category discussion.
