Basic Use of Categories
The ‘Categories’ tab is where you assign categories (and sub-categories) to each specific blog on your site. You must create at least one category for each blog you wish to post to. You can duplicate category names in different blogs and they will remain distinct. For example, if you have a category called "Habitat" in your Elephants Blog you will also be able to have a category called "Habitat" in your Hyenas Blog. The two categories will have distinct ID’s in the database and posts will not be confused between the two blogs.
Categories can be useful on your blog because users can sort posts by category. To access current blog categories, and create new categories, first find the collection where you want to manage the categories by following the order displayed in the screenshot above: Collections tab > Collection > Categories tab. Through this screen, you can edit the existing categories, or assign new categories to your chosen collection.
When creating a new category, you will have to designate it as a root category (main), or as a sub-category (extra).
Displaying Categories in a Specific Order
By default, your categories will be set to Alphabetical ordering; you can switch to manual ordering by selecting the "Manually" option in the "Category Order" fieldset.
Doing so, a new category property named "Order" will be enabled on the categories edition form and you can now enter the numerical value you wish to assign to a given category.
