A category is a good way of organizing content into easily navigable content structures. You can make a category by making an article with the name Category:Title. It is general convention for categories to plural (if a plural title is applicable). To put an article in a category add [[Category:Title]] to the bottom. If you want an article called The end to be alphabetized under "End, The" in the category then instead put [[Category:Title|End, The]] at the bottom. Categories are useful because it makes it easier for people to find content.
