Taxonomy: What is a Team?
A "Team" is a taxonomy term used to organize content based on subdivisions. This can be applied to sorting content or profiles by specific groups. It is also used by our RSS feeds.
Here are a couple of examples of how you can use the Teams taxonomy, although there can other uses as well.
To request your a new "Team" to the Drupal taxonomy menu, please email the Web team. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Creating a blog series
Say you would like to create a Listing page (aka a hub page) for a particular blog series. We'll use Practically Speaking in this example.
- Request "Practically Speaking" to be added as a taxonomy term.
- Create your Listing page
- Flexible Content > Add Filtered List
- Select "Blog" from Related Categories
- Select "Practically Speaking" from Related Teams
- Create your blog posts using the General page type.
- In the Taxonomy tab, select "Practically Speaking" from Related Teams
With these options selected, your Listing page will now show only Blogs tagged as the "Practically Speaking" team.
Creating a special teams page
Perhaps you want to create a page dedicated to a specific group of contributors, or sort by a special teams or task force. The "Teams" taxonomy is a great way to organize these subgroups of team members or guest authors. We are going to continue with the Practically Speaking example.
- Request "Practically Speaking Contributors" to be added as a taxonomy term.
- Create a Listing page
- Flexible Content > Add People List
- Select "Practically Speaking Contributors" from Team(s) the People Belong To
- Tag the team's Person pages.
- In the Taxonomy tab, select "Practically Speaking Contributors" from the Related Teams tags for the members of your new team -- that will make them show up in your listing page.
With these options selected, your Listing page will now show only profiles tagged as the "Practically Speaking Contributors" team.
