Linking to a category page could be useful in some circumstances.

To link to a category page one must use the WikiTextEditor - the RichTextEditor does not appear to allow linking to category pages.

Using the WikiTextEditor, add a category tag to the desired category page, but place a colon before Category.

Example: [[:Category:Example]]



As with any other link, a pipe can be used to represent the link as alternate text.
