Taxo | Version 4

Taxo Guide

Get information about how to use and integrate Taxo in Sophora and inform yourself about the benefits of the add-on.

With Taxo a new input field type can be created that allows administrators to associate an input field with a selected taxonomy document.

As a result of using Taxo, contents can be classified easier and more uniformly. By entering tags to the input field, editors get proposals of already existing tags.

Tags which are not included in the proposal list, will be added automatically after saving. The input field is used for entering and displaying tags, which classify the content of a document under certain categories.

Taxonomies can be created by editors or individual ones in the administration area of Sophora’s DeskClient.

Adding Tags

If you enter a tag to the input field, the new tag will be added automatically to the proposal list and can be used for the next entry again.

To add a tag:

  1. Click in the input field and enter a new tag. The tag can be composed of single words or a number of words.
  2. By pressing Enter the tag will be created and highlighted.
  3. Save the document.
