Adding Synonyms to Taxonomy Categories

Prerequisites: See Taxonomy Prerequisites for details.

You can associate synonyms with Taxonomy Tree categories. Synonyms display other names for a category. The feature benefits customers who search website content for similar words that don't match the category nomenclature.
Publishing produces the taxonomytree.xml file, which you can then access through RTAPI for the ICMSCategory Interface. If you have CMS 10.5, see CMS 10.5 RTAPI Documentation for the 10.5 ICMSCategory Interface. If you have CMS 10.0-10.3, see CMS 10.0-10.3 RTAPI Documentation for the CMS 10.0-10.3 ICMSCategory Interface.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Taxonomy.
  2. Select the category to edit in the Taxonomy Tree.
  3. Click the Synonyms tab.
  4. Add the synonym for the category in the field provided.
