Management Taxonomy Manager & Taxonomy Core http://drupal.org/project/taxonomy_manager Principle good, but no one uses it Confusing and slow (HCI issues) Major cross browser issues (Firefox) Requires a number of fixes… Flexible metadata on terms (core) Treat synonyms as full terms (core) Link nodes as term attributes (e.g. biblio) Improve manager HCI (drag-and-drop)
Search & Browse Navigation for finding tagged content TinyTax Automatically creates a mini-menu (block) of a vocabulary that is configurable for default term Intuitive Small footprint Integrates with a terms page TaxTab http://drupal.org/project/tinytax Augments default search with a tab for terms searches (includes term autocomplete) http://svn.scratchpads.eu/viewvc/t runk/sites/all/modules/taxtab/
Quick & intuitive Two step submission Fast (but could be quicker) Encourages tagging Autotagging Automated tagging of content Untagged node Use or ignore discovered tags (drag & drop or add) http://drupal.org/project/autotag
Mega-Vocabularies Sites with a million plus terms Current Taxonomy Problems e.g. http://catlife.myspecies.info (2 million+ terms) Taxonomy LeftandRight module Implements nested sets Over rides 3 taxonomy core functions - taxonomy_get_tree - taxonomy_overview_terms - taxonomy_select_nodes PHP requires too much memory for large hierarchies Very slow, especially above 50k terms Some sites with 300k terms (unusable) 1.8 million known species (6-80M est.) Very fast (in use with 2 million terms) Solves insertion problem with decimals Possible Solution http://drupal.org/project/leftandright
Sprint Expectations What we are looking to achieve Import and export of terms (TCS-XML?) from a repository Improved & flexible term metadata Handle synonyms as full terms Link nodes as attributes of terms Term and metadata management Permissions on terms (low priority?)
