Category talk:Index

From Teflpedia

Technical note[edit source]

In case this isn't obvious, category:index has to be manually added to all glossary entries using the wikitext:

[[category:index]]

Also make sure that {{DEFAULTSORT}} is set correctly, so that people are listed by their surnames and grammatical articles in titles are ignored. For example, Noam Chomsky contains the {{DEFAULTSORT}} code:

{{DEFAULTSORT|Chomsky, Noam}}

So he is listed under C rather than N.

Finally, special:randomincategory/index will redirect a user to one of the entries listed in the index. This means unlike special:randompage they can't be misdirected to a disambiguation page, conversation questions page or the Main Page.
