How to create catagories??

+13 votes
I'm jumping into the Cemetery Project for my first one.  I can work my way to the County sub-category and can see where I want to create the specific cemetery sub category and the subsequent free space profile.  As I navigate around WT, I can find definitions and supporting reasons for the category structure.  But nowhere can I find how to create the category or the free space.  Help!  Thanks, Jon

You will find categories in the FIND drop down menu.  Cemeteries are there.  You can easily click until you find where you would add a category.

Creating a free space is done from the Add menu on any profile - pull down and Add New Thing.

Categories are added by adding a line on any profile, free space or category page in the form [[Category: New Category Name]]

Before adding any I suggest you look carefully at all of the examples on Categorization   While it is easy to add both a Free Space and a category page it it well worth the time to fully understand the existing structure and format - otherwise you will be faced with the problem of having to redo all of your work later. (Been there, done that.)
