Categories allow content to be tagged with a random number of identifiers (or 'terms' in taxonomy speak). These categories are presented as input fields at the top of the page during the submission of content. Content types in the CMS (such as blogs, pages, web links etc) may have one or more categories defined. Available categories can also be different between content types.


The Baanboard CMS has been configured with 4 categories (or in taxonomy speak 'vocabularies') by default:

  • Knowledge/Type
  • Organization/Source
  • Language
  • Product/Service

The Knowledge/Type & Language categories are set up with a pre-defined list of selectable values. These will be presented as drop-down lists when you add your content to the CMS. On the other hand the Organization/Source & Product/Service will present contributors with a free-form input field. This will allow contributors to enter terms that may not have been available before. These free-form input fields support AJAX-based field completion so that already available values will be displayed as you type in your term.


Note that some content types may be defined with mandatory categories. In that case you must enter a value for that category before you can submit your content.Such mandatory categories are indicated by a *
