Setting Up Recommended Websites Categories

Thanks to Acquia support, I'm using URL Aliases to link Taxonomy Navigation in my Subject Guides for Recommended Websites subcategories.

For any Web Picks category that has subcategories, do the following:

  1. Create a vocabulary in taxonomy for that category and populate it with subcategories

  2. In blocks, assign the taxonomy navigation block for that vocabulary to the page View for the Recommended Websites category. Put the block in the Content Nav region.

  3. In URL Aliases, Create new aliases for each taxonomy term in the vocabulary.

    • Existing system path is the Page view URL (ie: research/by-subject/websites/386)

    • Path alias is the Taxonomy term URL (ie: taxonomy/term/386)

  4. In Blocks, add the Subject Guide tabbed menu to the subcategory pages

I think that's it.
