Categorizing Content (Taxonomy)

Taxonomy Terms are the terms by which you can categorize content on your website. Once a taxonomy term (category) is created, content can be tagged by it. This enables content to be grouped and listed based on the taxonomy terms (category).  

Creating the Taxonomy Term

  1. Navigate to Manage > Structure > Taxonomy
  2. Person Categories > List Terms
  3. Select Add Term
  4. Name your term and enter a description if you'd like.
  5. Save

Finding the Taxonomy Term ID

  1. Navigate to Manage > Structure > Taxonomy
  2. Click List Terms next to the desired content type
  3. Click Edit next to the desired term
  4. Copy the Term ID in the URL (On the example below: /term/4 means the term ID is 4). 

Using the Taxonomy Term

  1. Navigate to the page that you would like the content displayed on.
  2. Select the "Edit" Tab on the blue menu bar under the Title.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Add View.
  4. Select the type of View you would like displayed:
  5. Specify the Term ID in the "Arguments" field
    1. Note: If people, news, or events are showing up twice, specify the term as 4,4 to display only that category
    2. To display items that have two or more categories, use quotes like "4,5"
  6. Save

Note: Taxonomy Term ID's are created as you create the category, no matter the Content type.
