About this GadgetEdit

This gadget is used to apply categories to a book, and comes in two different parts. This gadget is the first, and the User:Whiteknight/Categorization Links template is the second. This page will only talk about the first part.

Selecting a CategoryEdit

Enter the title of the book in the textbox and click the down-arrow to select a subject. Subjects are arranged by Wikibooks Department, although they do not necessarily line up with the available bookshelves. Once you have picked the appropriate category, click on the "Categorize" button. This will start the categorization process, but will not display any results.

Displaying the WikitextEdit

Once you have pressed the "Categorize" button, you may click the "Display" button. This will show the created wikitext code from the categorization process, as well as some helpful notes for applying these categories to your book.

You may select the "Display" option if you have not entered the Book's title in the textbox. However, the {{Alphabetical}} template will not be properly categorized.

Editing and SavingEdit

After you press the "Categorize" button, you can click "Edit" to display a standard edit window that is preloaded with the page text and the generated categorization templates. Check and edit the text to ensure that it is correct, and then press the "Save page" button. This will save the page with the new categorization templates added.

You may not click the "Edit" button unless you have entered a bookname. If the page does not currently exist, the edit window will be blank except for the categorization templates. Do not save a page with just templates.
