Welcome to the Help:Best Practices: Categories guide.


A wiki needs a proper category tree in order to drive traffic to your wiki.

Helpful Links


While categories can be tedious at times it's best to view the larger picture and define this first rather than later. Note: Images can (and should!) also be categorized to ensure they a) are easily searchable and b) don't show up under Special:UncategorizedFiles.

[[Category:WIKINAME Wiki]] should be the 'Root' the main category, this is normally already generated for you although if it hasn't been generated, generate one.

Example of category setup:

WIKINAME Wiki -> Weapons
WIKINAME Wiki -> Items

If your game features one game but you see the wiki expanding to new title or a sequel, future proof the wiki by making it more organized and separate content by game. If the Wiki has multiple games:

WIKINAME Wiki -> Game 1 -> Weapons in Game 1
WIKINAME Wiki -> Game 2 -> Weapons in Game 2
WIKINAME Wiki -> Weapons -> Weapons by Game
WIKINAME Wiki -> Game 1 -> Items in Game 1
WIKINAME Wiki -> Game 2 -> Items in Game 2
WIKINAME Wiki -> Items -> Items by Game
