Portals

A portal introduces the reader to a subject by presenting images, categories and excerpts of key articles. Portals also guide editing by providing to-do lists.

Categorical indexes

The site's category system is generated from category tags at the bottom of articles and other pages. The top-level pages are:

  • Categories   —   an index of major categories, arranged by subject (because this page is crafted by hand, it is an exception to the category autogeneration rule)
  • Category:Contents   —   the highest level or "root" category in Wikipedia   —   its subcategories contain various types of encyclopedic content, content that assists with the navigation of the encyclopedia, as well as pages related to the maintenance of the encyclopedia   —   its autogenerated entries are listed at the bottom of the page
