Description Sourav Sharma 2005-02-24 03:40:18 UTC
I am using wiki, and i have faced lots of problem, and among many there is one
major one which i think needs lots of attention.

Say I have got 2 groups or sections or Catagories, Documents and Reports.

The problem is like -- I created one link or sub-catagory under Documents.
Under the Documents I have created one more sub-catagory as Papers.

Now When I go to Reports Section, and there if I create one sub-catagory as Papers,
then its showing the data of the Documents section.
as the sub-catagories name are same, though they are in 2 different sections or

I think its a major problem.

Each individual category must have a unique name. There 
is only one category [[Category:Papers]], which may itself 
be rooted in zero or more parent categories.

If you want to create a strict hierarchical arrangement and 
use the same name on each "level", you could reflect this 
explicitly in the naming, for instance:

|   \-- [[Category:Documents/Papers]]
    \-- [[Category:Reports/Papers]]
