Categories and tags

AGORA allows you to link content by summarizing information into categories or by assigning tags. You need to have moderator rights to take advantage of these ‘structural auxiliaries’, and to have activated the appropriate structural auxiliaries.

As a moderator, you can access the menu shown in Figure 1 by clicking the settings icon in the CommSy-Bar in your workspace. On the following page, select the tab "Additional settings".

You can use the structural auxiliaries (tags and categories) separately, or you can simultaneously activate both functions. Simply tick the respective boxes to activate them. The activated structuring options are then integrated and displayed (in the right info column) in all rubrics ("Materials", "discussion", etc.) (Figure 2) - even if terms have yet to be created and referenced.

The other options shown in Figure 1 for displaying the structural auxiliaries are discussed in detail in the following individual function chapters.

Note: Network navigation (also a structuring auxiliary) is displayed next to a material entry as a "referenced entry" and cannot be enabled or disabled; it is visible as standard in the info column on the right.
