1. This is a short article with a definition of the category of filters, now called the category of filters.

I apologise for vandalising by mistake the article on filters, and thanks to Richard Williamson for fixing this. I tried to “edit a current page .. in context on a relevant page” misunderstanding the intructions from HowTo:

How to start a new page

You do this in two steps, the first of which may have already been done:

Create a preliminary link (represented by a question mark) by editing > a current page and putting the name of the new page in double square brackets

Thank you for your edits and additions and for explaining; no problem! Welcome to the nLab :-)!

I will try to make the instructions which caused confusion clearer; if anybody else sees this and wishes to try to do so before I get to it, please feel free!

The page filter was literally edited with the old content removed and the content now at category of filters added instead; and the name of the page was literally changed to [[category of filters]] (including the square brackets).

Oh, I see.

Okay, I have re-worked the HowTo-section here.
