Categories app

The Categories app allows you to create categories for content tagging. When applied to content, categories appear as a set of metadata that describes and classifies the content. Categories are displayed as links in the article header or as a weighted list. By clicking category links, visitors can discover related content, resulting in more page views and longer stays on the site.


The Categories app is configured in /categories-app/apps/categories-app.yaml. The app configuration can be modified using definition decoration.


The Categories app operates on the category workspace.

Node types

The Categories app registers a custom mgnl:category node type and operates on nodes of this type and on folders.
