Editing Wiki Categories

You can add, edit, or delete categories to improve the organization of wiki pages in a group.


To add a category:

  1. On any wiki page, click the gray pencil button to open the editor. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit categories even if you don’t actually want to edit the page itself!)
  2. Click Edit next to the categories drop-down menu. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Enter a name for your new category and click Add.
  4. Click Close. The category has now been saved.
  5. Click the blue Save & Close button to close and unlock the wiki page.
  6. Note:  A category will not show up on the Group Wiki homepage if it has not yet been applied to any pages. However, when users create new pages, it will show up as one of their options in the categories drop-down menu.


To edit the name of a category:

  1. On any wiki page, click the gray pencil button to open the editor. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit categories even if you don’t actually want to edit the page itself!)
  2. Click Edit next to the categories drop-down menu. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Edit the name of the category; then click the gray check mark button next to it.
  4. Click Close. The changes have now been saved.
  5. Click the blue Save & Close button to close and unlock the wiki page.


To delete a category:

  1. On any wiki page, click the gray pencil button to open the editor. (Note that this is the way to get in and edit categories even if you don’t actually want to edit the page itself!)
  2. Click Edit next to the categories drop-down menu. A dialog box will appear.
  3. Click the red x button next to the category you want to delete.
  4. A message will come up prompting you to move the pages in that category to another category. Choose one in the drop-down menu.
  5. Click Confirm and then Close. The category has now been deleted.
  6. Click the blue Save & Close button to close and unlock the wiki page.
  7. Note:  If you want to delete a category plus all of the wiki pages in it, delete the individual pages first and then delete the category.
