Location of "category"? [closed]

I know I've seen this, but now can't find the answer. When adding a category, do I locate it under "Biography" or between "Sources" and "references"? I tried using the symbol as per instructions as a trial, and nothing was added to the profile (several different tries). Stuck, and I really want to do things correctly  :-)

Categories don't show in the biography so it isn't affecting the biography on where you place it, but as Koen said, it is easier if they are always placed in the same location at the top on all profiles so people can find them, if there is a problem.

Placement of the stickers and project boxes does affect how they are shown with the biography, but categories don't affect biography.
Thank you so much  :-)

They are normally placed at the top of the profile, above the biography header.

From a technical aspect it doesn't matter where you place them, it will work when you put it anywhere on the profile. But it's good when they are always in the same place, so that others know where to find them.

If you don't see the category when viewing the profile *not* in edit mode, you must scroll all the way to the bottom.
