UQ School Template
 

The Research Areas section of the Research page relies on several components to enable its functionality, viz taxonomies and content types. Each of these taxonomies consist of a list terms to group types (related items). The content types are Project/Grant and Research/Staff profile. Before these content types can be created, terms must be added to the taxonomies of funding source, grant type and research area.

Taxonomy

Taxonomy is used to categorise content in Drupal.  Taxonomy consists of several vocabularies that exist in the UQ School Template and these are funding source, grant type, research area, staff group and study area.

Taxonomy List

 

 
Terms

Each of these vocabularies consist of a list of terms that group types. Executive, academic, adjunct and honorary, associate, fellows and professional staff are examples of terms in the Staff Group vocabulary. Terms must be added to the School website for each of the vocabularies.

Content

A Drupal web site contains many types of content, such as pages, news articles, events, or people. Content types have default settings that predefine their behaviour, which fields they contain and whether they are published automatically.
