Setting up Content

New category

Add the Internal Category


and protect it using ACL.

Create a category by searching for Category:Name, or by clicking a link to the category. Add a page to a category by including the tag [[Category:Name]]

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):

[[:Category:Help]] -> Category:Help

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

[[:Category:Help|Help category]] -> Help category

See for more information.

Change sidebar

Add the Internal pages to the mediawiki sidebar

Browse the MediaWiki:Sidebar page and edit it. Don't include the square brackets in the links.
