Categories

Categories are an important feature on wikis. Creating a category is easy: you just have to write a category name onto the page and you are done. MoinMoin even simplifies this by letting you choose from a list of available categories while you are editing the page.

On the page of the category, you can give a brief description of the category's contents. If you want to get a list of all pages in that particular category, either click the title of the category or insert a suitable macro which lists the pages:

Normally, categories have to be named like CategorySomething. If you want to allow other patterns like Cat├ęgorieGaffeur (that is French by the way), then the administrator needs to change the configuration option page_category_regex according to the users' language, see HelpOnConfiguration for configuration tips and ConfigMarket for configuration presets.

The best choice is to create category pages from a CategoryTemplate (see HelpOnTemplates).
