    Drupal core comes with a taxonomy module
  • 0:13
    enabled by default.
  • 0:14
    And it even provides a vocabulary for you out of the box,
  • 0:17
    called Tags.
  • 0:19
    But we need something a little bit more than that
  • 0:21
    and more specific to our use case.
  • 0:24
    So in this lesson, we're going to create a new vocabulary,
  • 0:28
    we're going to add specific terms to it instead of having something
  • 0:31
    that's like free tagging, where can just sort of do whatever you want.

Hands-On: Categorizing Content


The Taxonomy module is included in core and is enabled by default when you install Drupal, along with a Tags vocabulary, which you can use to allow users to freely tag their content. In this lesson, we'll create a new vocabulary, populate it with the terms we need, and then add the vocabulary to our article content type.
