PaperThin CommonSpot Program Addresses MX Developer Needs

Native Taxonomy and Facet-Based Navigation Support Now Available

PaperThin's  CommonSpot Content Server version 4.6 has a  taxonomy module that now provides complete out-of-the-box taxonomy management for Web content administrators and contributors. New features include a taxonomy term editor and a taxonomy API, along with a powerful facet-based navigation element.

"The overload of data on many Web sites today makes managing content a cumbersome process," said Todd Peters, founder and president of PaperThin.

"At the same time, visitors to a site often find it difficult to access information that is pertinent to them. Our new taxonomy functionality addresses these inefficiencies by allowing organizations to easily classify and manage their content. And, it gives users the ability to intuitively ‘find and discover’ information within subject areas. We believe this functionality further differentiates PaperThin in the marketplace and will deliver real business value to our customers."

The taxonomy term editor lets organizations build and manage flexible taxonomies directly within CommonSpot. Each taxonomy defines one or more facets or hierarchical views into the data by defining ‘broader than’ and ‘narrower than’ relationships between terms.

Terms can also be defined to have other relationships in accordance with the ANSI Z.39 standard, allowing for the definition of taxonomies that meet critical business requirements. Content can then be rapidly assigned to terms using the taxonomy classification custom metadata field. Taxonomies can be easily refined as an organization’s classification needs evolve over time.
