Sorry, still not sure where to add, I am creating a space for my cemeteries. I am missing( Nez Perce County, Idaho), (Whitman County, Washington) (Asotin County, Washington)
It looks like you are linking through the category page.....Maybe send me a good example? I would like to not make work for other people....
Hi, Susan --
Categories can get really confusing until you use them a little -- took me a good long while to get used to them. I'm on the Cemeteries Project, too, btw.
I just want to make sure I understand what you're asking. You have created categories for new cemeteries, but the county categories are coming up red?
I just went and looked at Idaho, and there *is* a county listing for Nez Perce:
Nez Perce County, Idaho
Is it that you're missing the Nez Perce County, Idaho, Cemeteries category???
I'll just walk through an example of a cemetery setup and, hopefully, that will answer your question.
First of all, when you are initially linking a profile to a new cemetery, you will have a line in the Biography section that goes like this:
[[Category:New Cemetery, City, State]]
That will show up in red because nobody has ever created it before. So, you click on the red link, and you will come to a page where you can add in a couple more category lines which will place this new cemetery sub-category where it belongs (I'll use a cemetery I set up as an example):
[[Category: City, State]] (e.g., [[Category: Campton Hills, Illinois]]
[[Category: County, State, Cemeteries]] (e.g., [[Category: Kane County, Illinois, Cemeteries]] )
If the City category shows up in red, first go to the state & then county listing to make sure it's not there. Occasionally, there is a misspelling somewhere along the way. If, indeed, it is not there, and you need to create it, you will click the red link and add the following to its contents (again, using mine as an example):
[[Category: County Name County, State]] (e.g., [[Category: Kane County, Illinois]] )
This will place your newly created city into the correct county category.
If [[Category: County, State, Cemeteries]] shows up in red, then you are the first person to add cemeteries to this county. Yay!
Click the red link and enter the following (using *your* info as an example):
[[Category: State Cemeteries]] (e.g., [[Category: Idaho Cemeteries]] )
[[Category: County Name, State]] (e.g., [[Category: Nez Perce County, Idaho]] )
These two statements will 1) place the new county cemetery listing in the proper state category, 2) place the new county cemetery listing in the proper county category.
I just took a look at Idaho, and there are several county cemetery listings. Maybe looking at one of those will help you get a concrete example of how it's done. Here is the Idaho Cemeteries listing.
Good luck, and please feel free to message me if I can provide additional help!
