Czarowitz-1 confuses me. It is both a profile Id # and a category.

Jon's WikiTree profile link:

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Czarowitz-1

Jon's personal category link :

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Czarowitz-1

They are 2 different pages, in different name spaces (the tekkies can explain name spaces better, but they enable us to have different types of page groups with different functions). The difference in the URLs is highlighted.

To go to Jon's category page, you need to include the highlighted text.

It can be confusing if you don't use the concept yourself.

Thanks Lindy

I don't see it as a category on the page you linked.  That is another member's profile page.  I do not understand your question.

(The example has been lnabbed so it doesn't look the way it's supposed to)
