Navigating the Wiki


Wiki pages are divided into categories. Contributors are asked to specify categories for content. Do not place articles in the top category only; be as specific as possible. Multiple categories may be assigned to an article. For example: The article Ergonomics shall be listed under Category:Vehicle but not Category:Team. Steering Wheel could be listed under both Category:Vehicle, Category:Ergonomics, and Category:Electronics. The Engineering Materials category is for subjects that are not subsystem specific but engineering related such as fasteners, materials pages, simulation tutorials, etc. The FSWiki category should be reserved for master pages and pages that are far too general to get placed under Team, Competition, or Vehicle. The use of the FSWiki category tag should be actively discouraged.

The syntax for listing categories at the end of an article is: [[Category:Name]]. This syntax may be used to create new categories. Check that the category exists prior to creating a new one. Mediawiki isn't smart enough to pick up on similar categories ("electronic" vs "electronics", for example) and this will create clutter if it is not maintained. Category names are CASE SENSITIVE. "Electronics" is not the same as "electronics". Type carefully.

The root categories for FS wiki are as follows: [[Category:Vehicle]] [[Category:Team]] [[Category:Competition]] [[Category:Engineering_Materials]] [[Category:FSWiki]]
