Taxonomy in Drupal
Drupal has the provision of setting up a taxonomy, which means classification of content, and this feature allows users to add terms in the form of tags or metadata to the content. The taxonomy for a site is made up of vocabularies and each vocabulary is again made up of a set of terms. In the latest version of Drupal 7.0, you can also add fields to vocabularies and terms. In Drupal websites, classification of content is done through the Taxonomy module. Vocabulary in this Taxonomy module is set up through user-defined tags. Alternatively, it can also be set up through administrator defined terms. Taxonomy module is enabled from the modules page. Each term appears as a link and when the user clicks on the link to view a post, all other pages showing all the views with the same term will be displayed. There can be unlimited number of vocabularies with unlimited number of terms in a site. You can assign a name and a description to your vocabulary and can tie it with a particular content type and even decide the order in which your vocabulary will appear. Terms can be viewed and managed from the list terms page by clicking the edit link. Choose the vocabulary to link your term, assign a name to your term, decide the term’s order, or delete a term or add new terms. With the latest version, mass addition and deletion of terms, merging of terms, simple search interface, and dynamic tree view are all possible through the Taxonomy Manager module.
