  • Creation of custom taxonomy associated with an image
  • Hi all,

     I've a requirement to create a custom taxonomy with image associated with it, i.e, I've to create a taxonomy with text content & image. Which taxonomy should I use & how to implement it?

  • I've understood that I should be using Hierarchical Taxonomy. But how do I change hierarchical to custom taxonomy?
  • Hello Sneha,

    Can you please checkout the following documentation article for more details on how to create custom classification.

  • Hi Sabrie,

    Thanks for your reply. I've gone through the article before also. But that's not what I want! I need to create a custom taxonomy / Classification which acts as a module, i.e, which can take both image & title together. I've got some reference code for this! But when I'm integrating that into my code, I'm getting this following error - 

    No metadata has been registered for class 'SitefinityWebApp.CustomTaxonomy.CustomHierarchicalTaxon, SitefinityWebApp, Version=8.0.5700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'. (This usually indicates, that either this class is not declared persistent or it is declared persistent but not enhanced. The class was loaded from file:///(SolutionPath)/bin/SitefinityWebApp.DLL.)

     How can I fix this issue?

  • Hello Sneha,

    Please note that the classifications are simple objects and they do not have custom fields. So, it is not possible to add custom fields (including image field) to categories and tags.

  • Thanks for the information Sabrie. I understand that classifications are simple objects & they do not have custom fields. But I want to create a separate classification other than the existing classifications. It should be like Tags, Categories, All classifications & CustomClassification (the one I create). Is this possible? If yes then help me to understand how to make this work!

    I also need open access assemblies for sitefinity version 8.0. Can you tell me where I can find these assemblies?

    Regards,
    Sneha

  • Hello Sneha,

    I can understand your point of view, however, please note that currently it is not possible to associate taxonomy items with an image. We have a feature request logged in our feedback portal related to this at the following link. You can vote to increase its popularity.

    Regarding the assemblies, you can take them from the bin folder of the _EmptyProject of your current Sitefinity version.
