Hello all I am looking for an advice.
We are setting up large new section of the website with resources.
Resources can be links, files, pages, and small subsites
Resources need to be categorised each category will have subcategories there will also be other information about the resources such as topics it relates to and type of resource.
Resources can belong to multiple categories and subcategories
we have roughly 30 odd categories with each category having subcategories unknown number at the moment, but starting from 20+ and potentially new subcategories being added to in the future.
On the front end we would want to be able to show / search by
- A-Z category,
- both cat/subcat,
Advice I am looking for is the initial setup. Is it better to use Metadata select fields or Metadata Thesaurus? I know that it is easier to work with select metadata field and asset listings then thesaurus however the nature of cat/subcat and the fact that we will be adding to both of those lists makes me consider thesaurus.
I also have to consider creation of form for our users to submit new resources and how to handle thesaurus fields.
Any advice would be appreciated.
