Creating categories with taxonomy

Taxonomy is a way to categorize your content using “tags”. Once tagged, the content can be grouped and listed based on the terms associated with the content.

A Taxonomy group is called a Vocabulary; a specific tag is called a Term. Once a Vocabulary is created, Terms are added. Then the Taxonomy can be added to the Content Type as a Term Reference field type.
