See the step by step guide to creating your new taxonomy. This is a thought-intensive exercise, so take your time and rely on the community to get it right.
KEY INFO >> At the beginning, you don’t need to have a 100% perfect taxonomy, it may very well change throughout your implementation.
#2 – Create your P4 sitemap
While auditing your P3 content, you have to determine how P4 will actually be organised, aka determine your sitemap.
KEY INFO >> Visualising a sitemap is key to understand which content will be relevant for your NROs activity and campaigns and how these will interact with each other in the P4 dynamic pages.
In the “Content Review & Migration” document you will receive, there is a tab named “P4 Sitemap”, which will help you to understand how content will be organised in Planet 4. This exercise will help you understand how the website is organised and how Taxonomy is built.
The Default Template contains the Parenting page/s, so the pages that will be “one level up” of the others.
Take Action pages, for example will always have “ACT” as a parent page, and Issue pages will have “EXPLORE” as a parent. This to benefit of the P4 software functionality.
The “Take Action” pages represents all the ASKS related to a campaign, see “Take Action page“
The Issue pages represent the broader issue (e.g. “FOOD), and must be associated to Categories – see Taxonomy
The “Tags” are the fundamental component of P4 organic navigation. Whenever users click on a Tag, they are redirected to dynamically populated pages, which will contain all Take Action, stories, news and publications tagged with the same Tag.
The “Evergreen” pages are usually used for institutional content, which gets rarely updated or is not related to any specific campaign (e.g. “Our Values”, “Our History” and so on). These pages usually contain text and a few images, but no Take Action Cards or blocks.
Filling this tab will help you visualising your Planet 4 structure, and therefore identify which content you have to migrate, archive or create as new.
