shouldn't there be an additional category for "flowers"? unfortunately, i didn't find any info on how to add categories... -- Mnolf 06:45, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

How do we add subcategories?[edit]

Missing Botany subcategories that I've noticed: Flowers, Flower, Seeds.

What is the Wiki-technique for subcategorization?

Subcategorization is automatic. As soon as [[Category:X]] is added to the Category:Y page, category:Y becomes a subcategory of X. Hope that makes sense :) -Rooivalk 10:36, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
Seed and Herbarium added WayneRay 11:58, 23 August 2006 (UTC)WayneRay


I haven't found any heading for cacti. As a cactophile, I would be interested in learning more, and even contributing what little I know. Is there a hidden heading for cacti and/or succulent plants that I missed?

New articles and Categories[edit]

I have added several articles and categories in the Category:Seeds section that may be of interest. I have added new ones in this Botany Category as well. I still have to finish labelling and linking so bear with me or help out WayneRay 20:20, 30 September 2006 (UTC)WayneRay

New articles and subcategories have been added to Botany and Botanical illustrations as well as new articles from newbie uploads on the Recent Files pages. I need photograph images for a few projects that I want to add more material to so will make a list soon WayneRay 22:51, 13 November 2006 (UTC)WayneRay
Does the sub-category Seeds belong in Botany? There seems to be an argument brewing and the link to Botany is continuously being deleted from Category:Seeds the person or persons seems to think I placed it there and I did not. I keep putting it back and they keep deli=eting it. I believe it should stay. Opinions??? WayneRay 07:34, 4 June 2007 (UTC)WayneRay
