I am trying to link to a category page for the 34th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, United States Civil War. I thought I followed the directions but it doesn't work. Here is the page

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:34th_Regiment%2C_Illinois_Infantry%2C_United_States_Civil_War

Quality Biographies are such a challenge as a newbie. Of course, I want perfection on my first attempts. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Just put

[[Category:34th_Regiment,_Illinois_Infantry,_United_States_Civil_War]]

The system takes it from there.

You don't need to put in the URL.  Just use 2 brackets [[  then write Category followed by a colon then two spaces.  Add 34th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, United States Civil War then close it with 2 more brackets ]].

I did this one for you but, for future reference, just add the category as I explained above.

I often search for the category, then highlight and copy the page name, paste to the top of the profile, and add the brackets in front and at the end.

Category: 34th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, United States Civil War

Category: 34th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, United States Civil War

[[Category: 34th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, United States Civil War]]
