Taxonomy

Discussion

  • Taxonomy is integral to Drupal technology
  • Each taxonomy category has related terms
  • Terms are used as topics, tags, and keywords.
  • Terms may have subterms, e.g., animal -> cat -> breed -> tabby
  • Terms may be related between categories, e.g., cat -> cat food <- food
  • Content may have multiple terms, e.g., Title: FEMA Extends Assistance in Louisiana; Terms: FEMA, Housing, Food, Louisiana, Grant
  • Taxonomy terms are singular by default. Exceptions are made when necessary.
  • The same term may appear in multiple categories
  • Seven taxonomy categories (with terms) are proposed below
