Architecting a Taxonomy for Articles in AEM

Published on by Dan Klco on
One of the most common content structures in Content Management is articles. Articles are self-contained pieces of content relating to a single subject. This can range from blog posts to knowledge base articles, to news articles. Articles pose a challenge in Content Management as they don’t follow the content structure of the rest of the website, there usually is a large number of articles and articles still live within the site. In table or database based Content Management Systems, generating unique but usable URLs can be a challenge as the content is generally stored in a flat structure, but should have an SEO friendly URL. In Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), the content is stored in the repository in a hierarchical Content Structure, and having too many child nodes can cause both authoring and performance problems, so articles can be especially challenging to support.
