This page provides an overview on what type of information on pests, diseases and weeds exist in this wiki and how these components are structured.
First we need to explain the concept of categories. A wiki contains many pages which need to be sorted and ordered so that users can keep track on what information exists. This is done by placing a page in one or more category pages. Category pages always start with the 'Category' namespace. They can be created like any other page and can contain subcategories. A category page contains alphabetically sorted lists of its subcategories and of the normal pages, those in the (Main) namespace, which are assigned to this category. As an example see the Category:Journals (which contains the subcategory Conference Proceedings and many normal pages). To assign a page to a category simply place a line like
near the bottom of a page. You can assign a page to several categories. The category assignments appear in a separate box at the bottom of the page. For more details see the respective MediaWiki page.
