Within a community site, you can create categories that are used to classify discussions. Unlike tags, which are used elsewhere within SharePoint 2013, only a single category can be assigned to each discussion. As a result, you should choose broad and easily assignable categories. After all, if discussion authors have trouble choosing categories when they add discussions, the organization of content within your site will become increasingly arbitrary over time.

Non-owners and non-moderator users of your site cannot create categories, but they can browse the list of categories and view new discussions within a category. With categories, users can focus their viewpoint on discussions and conversations relevant to areas of interest.

Creating categories

  1. On the Home page of your site, in Community Tools section, click the Create Categories link.

  3. On the New Category page, type a name for the category you are creating.

  4. Type a description of the category.

    The description displays when users hover their mouse over the category tile on the Categories page.

  5. You can choose to provide a link to an image that will be used for the category tile icon in the Categories page.

  6. Click the Save button to save the new category.

Tip

If you want to use special graphic tile to represent your category, you can upload an image to the Site Assets library on the site. These tiles are displayed to users who browse the category library.
