Taxonomy: A way to organize your content

The Taxonomy module lets you classify content into categories and subcategories, thus organizing the content on your site. For example, you could classify music by genre: classical, jazz, rock. And you might further classify "classical" into concertos, sonatas, symphonies, and so on. When your users create new content, you can let them classify it (or even require them to do so) right when they create it.

When users view a post to which a category has been assigned, along with the post your theme will generally show the name of the category (or categories) to which the post belongs. Each category's name appears as a link. And clicking on that link will bring users to a page showing the other posts of the same category.
