I think you got your page and group naming a little confused.
You got content pages Category.PointsOfSailing, etc., which are pages
in a group called "Category".
Then you got a group called "Terms" with a page called "NauticalTerms",
and another called "NauticalDictionary".
On page Terms.NauticalTerms you got links to Category pages, i.e.
Now I would think that pages PointsOfSailing etc. are terms in your
nautical dictionary. So for the pmwiki group structure it may be
better to have a group called "NauticalDictionary" with pages
NauticalDictionary.PointsOfSailing etc, each page is a term in your
Then the standard way to use pmwiki categories would perhaps be to
add category links to those pages, if appropriate. And use the
Category group in the standard way with a pagelist in the GroupFooter
to display the backlinks, i.e it will produce a list of links to all
pages which have the same category link (like it is done on pmwiki.org
and used extensively for cookbook pages). I don't know hopw that
translates to your site, but it could be that pages in different
groups share the same category, for instance "Engine", "Paint", "Sail"
I hope I explained this clear enough and it is of some help.
Also note that pmwiki does not support a hierarchy of groups. You only
have groups and pages, a two tier system.
