News Taxonomy

The News Topics vocabulary gives you the ability to organize and categorize your news content. This vocabulary include a number of useful terms by default (Announcements, Awards, Faculty, In the News, Staff, and Students), and site managers have the ability to add, edit, or delete these terms.

Note: Stanford Sites does not support nested taxonomy terms for News.

Once terms have been added to the News Topics vocabulary, they can be added to the News Topics Terms section on any news node edit page.

Once a term has been added to a news item, the news item will be categorized within that term's related News Topics List Page. In this example, an article tagged with "Faculty" would be included in the news list results page under Faculty at [your site url]/news/faculty. All of the News Topics list pages can be accessed through the News Topics Menu, or by clicking on the terms themselves when displayed within the the list page teaser and at the top/bottom of the article pages.
