[edit] Using "What links here"

Another handy tool is the "What links here" link in the toolbox (usually on the left side of each page, under the search box). For example, if you can't remember the name of an organization, but you remember that Red Hat is a member, you might find the organization by looking at Special:WhatLinksHere/Red_Hat.

[edit] How to use Special:CategoryTree

Special:CategoryTree shows an expandable list of categories.

  • Click on the category name to see the articles in that category
  • Click on the [+] to see only the subcategories

When you see an interesting category, it's probably most useful to then click the category name. Clicking the [+] is useful when you're browsing the tree, still looking for an interesting category.

[edit] Categories

Every page on en.swpat.org should be listed in at least one Category or subcategory page. Each page's categories can be found along the bottom edge of the article. For example, if you look at the bottom of this page, you should see "CategoryEn.swpat.org".

You can browse the Category pages which list relevant articles. You can start at the top level category, and click through to more categories.

Or you can browse the list below:

Key:
  • Top level
    • 2nd level
      • 3rd level
