    Updating categories

    So recently been interested in pup and there have been a lot of new attachments so wanted to check out the new ones and of course the attachment category is way out of date.

    Think I've found all of them and wanted to update the category for easy referencing... but no idea how to do that since hitting the edit button reveals not much to that page. I'm guessing I have to do something to each attachment page individually to link it to that but no idea what exactly

    Could you give an example page and how you want to change it?

    Are you talking about this category page?
    https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Category:Automaton_Equipment
    It looks like the [[Category:Automaton Equipment]] tag is added manually (at least some of the time). That seems to be redundant with the Automaton Item category, which is likely coming from the item template, so it should really just be removed rather than expanded.


    Or, are you talking about individual Automaton attachment pages, like this one?
    https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Auto-Rep._Kit_II




    If you can link me to a page and tell me exactly how you'd like it to change, I can help you.

    Yes that page. Automaton item page says it doesn't exist and basically goes back to the equipment one.

    Basically I was wanting a page that has a consolidate list/links to all attachments. Since https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Category:Automaton_Equipment already existed I was just going to update it to include the ones that have been added since it was last update but didn't know how. If there is another away to search for attachments that would work too

    The Automaton item category appears to be dictated by the item template (pulled from the .dats), which means that it should be a complete list of the attachments:
    https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Category:Automaton_Item

    You should just put your summary table on that page, remove every manual link to the Automaton Equipment page, redirect any current Automaton Equipment links to the Automaton Item page, and then delete the Automaton equipment page. The Automaton Item category will continue to be updated automatically as more attachments come out.

    That link takes me to a page that looks exactly the same as automaton equipment page.... so missing a lot of stuff. Like basically everything in the last year and a half so about 40 attachments

    Also how the heck you even find that auto item page? Every search I do keeps saying it doesn't exist but clearly it does....

    Automaton attachments were treated like regular items in our tools we use to add data to the wiki after every update. Using https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Ten._Spring_III as an example, the only category it is in is "item". If someone were to edit the page and add |type=Automaton Item to that page and replace |type=Item it'll then show up on the list at https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Category:Automaton_Item.

    Automaton Equipment is a redundant page like Byrth said, so that should be removed and all pages that have that category on them should be edited and the category tag should be removed.

    With the addition of a couple of attachments today it's relevant to go over this - currently the difference between the Automaton Items and Automaton Equipment categories seems to consist on a few attachments the Items version contains and Equipment lacks, and stuff in the AH Automaton category like Automaton Oil - although the Turbans used in the head quests, which are also in that AH section, are in neither.

    So currently there's no attachment-exclusive category or page. And wasn't there some wiki categorization principle about having stuff reflect the AH categories?

    Maybe for now I'm part of the problem, but I applied both Automaton categories to today's new attachments just in case...
