Helps with new naval ship - USS Pequot (1863)

+2 votes
I've added a new category for the USS Pequot, but it's listed under "U" instead of "P" on the Union Navy, United States Civil War page. I don't know how to force it to list under "P".

Hi Jeff. We use what is called a sort key with the parent category in order to display the ship in the correct list in the subcategories. To do this:

[[Category:Union Navy, United States Civil War|Pequot]]

The pipe "|" is followed by the ship name in the category wiki markup.
Hope that helps for future reference. :-)
