In WordPress, Taxonomy is a way of grouping and categorizing content based on shared characteristics. Taxonomy is used to organize content on your website and make it easier for users to find related content.
WordPress comes with two built-in taxonomies: Categories and Tags. Categories are hierarchical taxonomies used to group content into broad topics, while Tags are non-hierarchical taxonomies used to group content based on specific keywords or phrases.
You can also create custom taxonomies in WordPress to group and categorize content in different ways. Custom taxonomies can be created for any type of content on your website, such as products, events, or portfolio items.
Theme or plugin developers may also create custom taxonomies for a different type of post types like portfolio, teams.
Taxonomies can be managed and customized using the WordPress Dashboard or by using plugins that provide additional functionality. Customizing taxonomies allows you to create more specific groupings of content and make it easier for users to find the content they are looking for on your website.
