2CategoryCategory identifier as a jump to its entry in the Access section in the Work list page, with its article list expanded. New for a new category

Details

This section describes the basic information for managing a category.

The details fields for a category are:
#NameDescription
1HeadingHeading for the category. Cannot be changed to one that already exists
2NavigationShort version of the Heading to be used in navigation links
3DescriptionDescription of what the articles in the category are about. Used to provide text about the category on various pages
4CreatedDate the category was created
5SubsiteProvides the numbers of categories and articles in the category's subsite, as well as a means to change that subsite
6ActionsProvides jumps to the Order articles and Move articles pages, as well as to the category's entry on the Work list
7ShowSpecifying how visible pages are in terms of discoverability. Listed means the category and its articles are listed on various public pages. Unlisted do not appear on those pages, but can be accessed if their URL is known. Hidden cannot be publicly accessed. The default category and its articles are never listed, but the articles can be accessed if their URL is known
8StatusA per locale setting specifying whether the locale-specific version of the page is available, or falls through to the next locale. Is Always for the master locale
9ImageDetails about the current image used for displaying in a card or gallery item that links to the category, with an opportunity to select another, or remove it. Only Cards and Asides are available for selection
10DeleteAvailable to delete a category, but only if it is hidden, has no articles, and is not linked to

The identifier used by links and URLs is derived from the master locale Heading by converting it all to lowercase, then converting each sequence of non-alphabetic characters to a single -.

Navigation is mainly for ensuring that navigation text is short so that many items can appear in navigation bars. That means that it may not be required for all locales, but only for those that may need to be shorter. Therefore, unlike other values that fall-through the locale hierarchy to the master, Navigation is only used if defined for the current locale, otherwise the heading is used. A ? will appear if the heading is too long, but Navigation may be safely ignored at the expense of possibly cluttered navigation bars.

Specifying an image for a category can aid navigation because it can be used in a card (if Card) or gallery (if Card or Aside) array of a Navigation article by referencing the category as part of the array.

3Link typeThe location of the link in its host. Click to jump to where that link is defined in the source
