Author: admin 68 views

The custom taxonomies are a simple way to organize your content. When you use a taxonomy, you’re grouping similar things together. The taxonomy refers to the sum of those groups.

Example: A listing type, called Cars, needs additional categorization like Vehicle type – SedanCoupeSUV and so on… You can use the custom taxonomy to manage that categorization.

You can add unlimited number of taxonomies and attach it to multiple listing types.
