Victoria Australia Category

+1 vote

I have tried to create a location page for Victoria Australia. I carefully read all the instructions but it hasn't worked as I had intended. I wanted to go Oceania > Australia > Victoria but its come under articles rather than subcategories. Not sure that I have edited it in the right way can anyone help? My actual aim was to set up a cemetery page but I needed to link it to somewhere.

It looks like you've created a free space page for Victoria (not a category), and put it in the Australia category.

Because Victoria is a state, according to our naming conventions the category should just be called Victoria, not Victoria, Australia. So to create the category, you need to go to and edit the page. Since it should be a subcategory of Australia, you just need to put [[Category:Australia]] on that category page.

Let me know if you have any more questions about this!
