Also categories in mere page text aren't enough, you have to add them to the ??? Element if constructing the page from scratch... I'm on my phone so sorry if this has already been said.   The queston marks are because I don't rember its name.

Patrick, thanks for your reply.

As an experiment, I simply used the Linux "touch" command on both wiki.d/.lastmod and my synthetic wiki page. I'm afraid that didn't work - the category page still doesn't see the synthetic page.

Any other thoughts?
