Create a detailed category

This page applies to:MindTouch (current)

This article explains why and how to create a detailed category, i.e. a category that displays a list of contained categories or guides without having to click into it.

Why would I choose a detailed category?


Maybe you considered creating a category as a simple category but then decided against it. Maybe because a detailed category fits your overall navigational design scheme better or testing revealed that your users prefer to be shown more information before deciding to click into a category. Whatever the reason, if you want to display a list of the guides that are contained in a category, choose the detailed category:
