Adding New Categories

The Taxonomy module maintains Vocabularies, each of which contains a number of Terms (categories/tags). Vocabularies are categories of terms and are used to label the input boxes where users can select terms. Because the menus on this site depend on consistent application of terms, "free tagging" is not allowed.

Changing the Display Order of Terms and Vocabularies
  1. Go to Administer > Content management > Taxonomy
  2. To change the order of Vocabularies, drag them using the handles on their left sides, then click Save.
  3. To change the order of Terms, choose "list terms" from the appropriate Vocabulary.
  4. Arrange the terms by dragging, then click Save.
