Set up a new category link? :( help please

+7 votes

When setting up a category, requires more than one step, I just can't seem to understand the steps involved.  On seeing Keith's posting for ways to help, the Local Researcher popped out as an "I can do that" - but the research will be much easier than getting the category link set up.  The state and county were already there, so I added my town, and inserted the county category link, within the town - all is well, but now can't understand the directions to adding "Category:Research_Assistance".  I put it in the town category, but it showed up in the higher, huge countries listings.  The more I read the directions, my brain turns to mush.  

How do I get a link in Port Townsend, Washington, that will send someone wishing research assistance, to my profile page?

Patt, right now the Research Assistance categories appear to be set up by State in the US.

You need to add the Category: Washington Research Assistant to your profile and it will show up here:

Which was found by working down through the links from here:

Be sure to add your name for the Badge for Local Volunteer on your profile as well.

Also, on the Washington Research Assistant page you can edit it as did Susan who narrowed her focus.

Be sure to put some comments as to what you are willing to do on your own page as well.

Thank you Michael - success :D  I was on the wrong road (as usual).
My Pleasure. Thank you for becoming a research volunteer!
