Creating taxonomy content

Learn how to define the content of taxonomies you've enabled using the main interface. If you're a Pro user and have access to the Pro interface, learn how to create taxonomy content using the Pro interface.

Adding a new term to a taxonomy

Note: You have to be a taxonomy manager to edit taxonomies.

Navigate to an archive that has taxonomy navigation enabled. You will see the taxonomies that are enabled for the archive in the left side panel.There are also controls to Add a term in each taxonomy and you can edit the properties of the entries that have been made.

If your taxonomy is empty, you can start adding entries at the root level of the taxonomy by simply clicking on Add term. If you already have an existing taxonomy and wish to modify it, navigate to the level at which you want to add or edit content and then use Add term or use the edit buttons to change the properties of an item or remove it.

Tip: If you are creating a large taxonomy and have access to the FotoWeb Pro interface, you can create the entire taxonomy much quicker there than in the main interface.

Handling of child items in a node 

When a user executes a query by clicking on a taxonomy item that has child items (narrower terms), FotoWeb will include all narrower terms in the query if there are no more than 25 narrower terms. With more than 25 child items, only the clicked node will be included in the query.

What's next?

Next you may need to edit the behavior of the taxonomy items you have created.
