Iacobe: A category is different from a page. there is a page named Phylum (taxinomia) but no category except this one.--Rafaelgarcia 16:21, 7 Novembris 2009 (UTC)

OK, let the page "Phyla (taxinomia)" print red then until somebody creates it; meanwhile, delete "Categoria:Phyla" because it should rightly be "Categoria:Phyla (taxinomia)." Somebody at the start should have created & put the basic taxonomical categories (e.g., "Phyla (taxinomia)") in order, since the names of most of the biological ones have already been worked out in Latin by biologists, and they don't require the thought & potential argumentation frequent in the categorization of nontaxinomical concepts, like "edible plants," "flowers," "medicinal plants," "salt-loving plants," "trees," "weeds," and so on.

Categories work differently than pages. A page appears in a category named X when the command [[Category:X]] is placed on that page. You can't prespecify which pages will appear in which category by editing the category itself. I don't see the need of creating a separate Categoria:Phyla (taxinomia) page unless we plan to have a separate Categoria:Phyla category. There is no point. It would just take longer to type at the bottom of the phyla pages.
If you merely want to make phyla (taxinomia) produce the content phylum (taxinomia) just make the former a redirect by adding the text: #REDIRECT[[Phylum (taxinomia)]]. Or, to make phyla (taxinomia) produce the content of categoria:phyla just make the former into a redirect to the category, via #REDIRECT[[:Categoria:Phyla]].--Rafaelgarcia 18:41, 7 Novembris 2009 (UTC)
