Taxonomy

WebPublish 3.0 allows you to group content together to make it easier for users to locate similar types of content, using a tool called Taxonomy. The Taxonomy contains Vocabularies. Each Vocabulary contains terms that can be used to tag content that fits into a particular category. These categories or terms are customizable and can be created and managed by a site's administrator.

Both the Article and Event content type can be tagged using the site-wide "Tags" vocabulary. Follow the Basic Vocabulary Updates tutorials on this page for help managing your site's taxonomy
