Orchard Taxonomies

The Orchard Taxonomies module adds a way to manage taxonomies, and assign them to specific content types, thus allowing content classification and filtering.

What is a Taxonomy

A taxonomy is a hierarchical set of terms used to classify content. Taxonomies differ from tags as they are controlled, whereas tags can be freely defined. The Orchard Taxonomies module adds a way to manage taxonomies, and assign them to specific content types, thus allowing content classification and filtering.

What is it useful for ?

Taxonomies can be used to streamline content editing by providing a set of predefined values to content authors. It is also useful to drive the front page display by filtering the elements to display on each page, based on their categories.

Where do I start ?

You should condider reading the documentation as it shows some typical usage scenarios, and will guide you from installing the module, to advanced usage and configuration.
