Categories are the primary method of grouping similar files together on PidgiWiki, helping to navigate through the tens of thousands of files in the database. These categories are added to files through the info template and appear as links on the bottom of each file's page; however, the individual category pages are not automatically created and need to be created manually. This page functions as a guideline on what these category pages should contain.

To add a category, place [[Category:Category name here]] on the bottom of a page or image.

Category structure

The category system works best if each category is related to another category, creating a hierarchical structure for easy browsing. More general categories should be added to the pages for more specific concepts.

For example, consider the following category outline:

In this scenario, [[Category:Games]] should be added to Category:Nintendo 64 games, [[Category:Nintendo 64 games]] should be added to Category:Super Mario 64, and [[Category:Super Mario 64]] should be added to Category:Super Mario 64 artwork.

Top-level categories

The following are PidgiWiki's top-level categories:

Each file should be assigned to a combination of the above categories, by correctly filling out the info template while uploading a file.
