Creating content groups

One of the most important vocabularies on your site is called Content Groups. Through this vocabulary, your site contributors and editors will be able to tag content to specific parts of your site. Also, it is important to understand that all of the group vocabularies (e.g. Biographical Groups, Content Groups, Faculty Group, etc.) are also associated with a “nodequeue”, which is covered in detail in Working with nodequeues section.

For now, we will focus on the steps required to add a new term to a group, using Content Groups as our example.

First, click “Structure” within your admin toolbar:

* decoration

You should now see the Structure page. On this page, click “Taxonomy”.

* decoration

Locate Content Groups within the Vocabularies list and click “Add terms”.

* decoration

Next, provide a name for the new term. Keep in mind that this name will be read by all of your contributors and editors and thus its function should be clear. For example, if you were creating a slideshow for your site’s home page, you would choose a name along the lines of “Home-Slideshow”. This name communicates both which page on which the content to be displayed as well as the widget which will display it. If the contributor then wanted to see if their addition took effect, it would be clear to them to check the slideshow on the site’s home page.

Once you have chosen a name, click “Save”. Generally, you only need to translate this new term if you wish to provide your contributors and editors with the translated version if they are working of the French side of the backend. To do so, follow the instructions in Section translating taxonomy terms, keeping in mind the guidelines for naming the term.

Lastly, if you create a new term, the subqueue will only be generated once an item has been tagged to the newly created term. Read Working with nodequeues section for more on subqueues.
