Section 3.5 - Categorizing pages

There are several different ways to categorize a page in Enano. We've already been over using Breadcrumbs to create a tree-like structure for your pages; now we'll show you two ways to categorize pages using a web-like structure.

Using "Category:" pages

The Category namespace is special because in addition to the content of the page, other pages can be placed within that page. Most pages can be categorized using the "edit categorization" link at the bottom of a page. You can link categories to a page group and thus place access controls on all the pages in that category. If a category is protected, no pages can be added to or removed from the category.

Category pages can have content and be edited just like other pages. So category pages will have an edit button on them. If a category has any content, that content will be shown before the list.

You can also categorize categories. Rumor has it that a category can even be a subcategory of itself!

Tagging pages

Enano has always been about Web 2.0, and the addition of tagging support in version 1.0.1 makes no exception to this. A tag is a short string of text, usually all lowercase and no spaces, that is used to group pages together. If, for example, your site is about cars, you might use tags like "ferrari", "lamborghini", or "porsche." A "tag cloud" is a summary of the tags being used on the site, with incrementally larger and bolder text used for more popular tags.

You can view the tags on a page by clicking "show page tags" on the right side of the box showing a page's categorization. Click Add a Tag in the tag viewer to add a new tag to a page.

Use in page groups

Both categories and tags can be used as targets for a page group. Enano doesn't prevent users from adding or removing pages from categories linked to page groups (because administrators can protect the category), but it does prevent users from using tags used for page groups unless they have permission to edit ACLs.
