I added this category to a page I just created, The Sesame Street Postcard Book, but the page link shows up on this category under "M" rather than "S." Same thing with the Valentine's Day category, where the page link shows up under "V." The text of the newly created article contains "DEFAULTSORT:Sesame Street Postcard Book, The" in double brackets, so the book shows up in correct alphabetical order in the Sesame Street Books category. What am I doing wrong?— Tom (talk) 20:53, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
- You're adding code after each category, just the way you linked them internally in the text (which by the way you don't really need to do if you're already placing it in those same categories, it's redundant). So, you added [[Category:Mother's Day|Mother's Day]] and so it's alphabetizing it under M, V, H for Halloween and so on. Just trim those. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 21:00, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
- Thanks, Andrew. What confused me was that I'd tried what you suggested, and it didn't seem to work, but I it again and then tried updating the category by: deleting the category, saving the page, re-adding the category, and re-saving the page. This process updated the category page with the link in the correct place. Thanks again!— Tom (talk) 21:08, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah, you have to do that with the new system. I have my preferences (once Scott pointed it out) set to the old format where I can *see* all the category coding and edit it by hand. It's just easier for me (and the only way to re-ordering category placement without deleting and re-adding). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 21:18, November 20, 2009 (UTC)
