Categories and tags can be used to organize the content on your blog, whether you are using our free William blog or a blog from another CMS system.

  • Categories can be used to create different sections within your blog and typically a blog article will only have one category assigned.

  • Tags can be used to label a specific blog article, as if they were hashtags, so typically you might assign multiple tags to one blog article The goal is that the readers can quickly access all the blog articles with a specific tag, because they are interested about that topic.

If you are using an external CMS system which has been connected to StoryChief, you can import them from within your own system.

Afterwards, you can assign a category and tags to each story by following these steps:

Step 1. Go to the story editor and navigate to the Summary tab of the story editor.

Step 2. By scrolling down a bit, you'll find the fields 'Category' and 'Tags'. You can either type in a new category/tag or select one that has already been created from the dropdown.

Step 3. Once your story gets published, these categories and tags will also be sent over to your blog, together with the other fields.

Editing or deleting categories & tags:

Visit your categories or tags page to edit or delete existing options. To do so, click on your name at the top right > Settings > Stories > Click on Categories or Tags.

The order that categories are shown in the sidebar of your William blog can be altered by dragging and dropping them in your categories page.

Want to disable the creation of categories or tags in the editor? Enable the lock option in your categories or tags page and click Save.
