How do categories work?

Categories are a way of indexing the content on Lyriki. Currently there are artist, album and song categories exist that let you view all the content that has been assigned to one of the categories. The general format is like so:

{{C:TemplateName|SortLetter|SortName}}

You assign an article to a category simply by adding the appropriate template at the bottom of the page. For example, if I'd just created the song page for Bicycle Race, the following would be placed at the bottom of the page:

{{C:Song|B|Bicycle Race}}

This assigns that page to the general "Songs" category, as well as "Songs beginning with B". Albums and artists are categorized in much the same way, but with a different template name:

{{C:Album|G|Greatest Hits}}
{{C:Artist|Q|Queen}}

When deciding what the sort-letter and sort-name should be, use the sorting rules.
