Categories Administration Portlet

Introduction #

Allows to manage all the categories and vocabularies in your organization/community.

Categories are created by an administrator and the user can choose one or serveral of them (taxonomy).

Categories can belong to vocabularies. For example, we might have the vocabulary version and its categories would be 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. We might also have another vocabulary called topic and the categories there could be "using Liferay", "suggestions", "installation"...etc

This portlet can be found in the Control Panel under the Contents section.

Features #

  • Add, Delete or Edit categories and vocabularies
  • Group your categories hierarchically using drag & drop (drag a category and drop it over another to convert the first one in a child category)
  • Add properties to categories

Categories Administration is one of Liferay's Out of The Box Portlets

Hi,

Works order for categories? I drag a category but can't save its order emoticon

How can we load up a vocabulary automatically? I can only see portal.properties to specify the properties for categories not the categories to load for a specific vocabulary.

Like others I would welcome real life examples which use properties we well.

Why is it forbidden to use symbols like parentheses, percent etc in category properties values? I don't see any reason for this.
With this limitation categories properties are severely handicapped - you can't even, for example, put a URL in, because slashes, colon and percent symbols are also forbidden. Y?..
