Brightspot CMS User Guide

Dynamic taxonomy

Brightspot's standard tag feature helps organize similar assets. Using tags, visitors can easily discover content on your site, and editors can quickly find and copy related assets. Over time, the number of tags can become large, and editors may have difficulty finding the correct tag to apply. With dynamic taxonomy, dynamic tags are placed in dynamic tag categories, and dynamic tag categories are associated with content types. This taxonomy ensures editors can easily select relevant tags for a given asset.

Brightspot's dynamic taxonomy gives administrators control over the dynamic tag categories from which editors can select dynamic tags, based on an asset's content type.

Dynamic taxonomy is an extension to Brightspot. To include this feature in your own Brightspot project, see the build instructions in the corresponding file.

The dynamic taxonomy extension usually replaces Brightspot's standard tag content type. To facilitate the editorial workflow with this extension, create a custom content form without the Tags field for each content type used in the dynamic taxonomy. For example, if you use a dynamic taxonomy with the content type Article, create a content form for Article that does not include the Tag field. For details, see Creating a custom content edit form.
