Other US Navy Category Page Template

Jump to: navigation, search

After you add an active link for new "Other U.S." category or activate the link for an existing category, the link will appear in red. To create the category page, click on the link and the editor will appear. To make the process easier and maintain consistency, copy and paste the following template (all the text inside the box just below with the border made out of blue dashes) into the editor and make appropriate modifications as described below.

<!-- How to edit this page:

an existing entry (ie, the name is not an active link), then either 
[[Contact_Us | contact the Curator]] or edit this page yourself and fix it.

You need to make a couple of modifications before saving the page.

First, you need to find the following line in the template:
 
This index lists entries in the CATEGORY NAME category.
 
It is the third line above the
 
<!-- =================================== -->
<!-- Do not add anything above this line -->
<!-- =================================== -->

 
You will need to change this line and give appropriate values for CATEGORY NAME. For example, if the page you are creating is for category Receiving Ships, the line should look something like:
 
This index lists entries in the Receiving Ships category.

 

Notice that the template includes a generic "inactive link" template for adding entries belong to the category.
 
<tr><td><!-- [[PAGE_NAME | --> ENTRY NAME <!-- ]] --> </td></tr>
 
You can copy and paste it as many times as needed and then replace "PAGE_NAME" and "ENTRY NAME" with appropriate values. If you need the link to be "active", just remove the HTML comment tags. For more information, see Editing Other U.S. Navy Index Pages.

 

If you run into trouble or need to do something a little more complicated, contact the Curator for help.

Don't forget to preview the page before saving it and please add a short description of the change in the Summary text box just above the Save / Show buttons at the bottom of the page. A short description would be something like "page created".
