......@@ -30,6 +30,7 @@ Annotations come in different flavors:
Annotations can be categorized, but don't have to be. The categories themselves are organized hierarchically.
If a category has no parent category, it is a top category. If a category has no child category, it is called a leaf.
If a category has both a parent and a child category, it is called a node.
Categories themselves don't have to be unique. In the example below, the category `examples` is not unique, one
belongs to its parent `written addition` and the other to `written sutraction`:

Note: **the combination of parent_category/child_category must be unique**
### insert new category
To insert a new category into the categories table, we simply add one of the following anywhere in a Wiki Page:
{{#annotcat: add | new top category:description }}
{{#annotcat: add | new category:description | parent_category }} # add to an existing top category
{{#annotcat: add | new category:description | grandparent_category/parent_category}} # identify a node
{{#annotcat: del | kat_parent/kat_child }}
Before page gets saved, and after these categories are added/removed,
these parser functions are removed from the Wiki Page source.
### list existing categories
{{#annotcat: list }} # lists all categories
{{#annotcat: list | top_cat }} # start with top_cat (which must have no parent)
{{#annotcat: list | parent_cat/child_cat }} # start list with node parent_cat/child_cat

# query annotations
Example: find all pages with category kat_parent1:kat_child1 but not !kat_parent2:kat_child2 which contain either comment1 OR comment2 and where wiki_text contains the word «bla»:
category=[kat_parent1/kat_child1, !kat_parent2/kat_child2],
comment={comment1, comment2},
```Page (link to page), comment, category, wiki_text```
**Problem**: how to provide a deep link, not just to the page but to the right paragraph which was annotated.
**Possible Solutions**:
- Maybe search for the text?
- Can we add a unique ID to the function hook? Difficult.
- We now start_char and end_char in the source. Maybe we can add a marker at the given spots?
- we should always include the next previous title to the annotation. We then could use this title to add an anchor to the URL and thus be redirected to the right paragraph.
