Warning This document has not been updated for a while now. It may be out of date.Last updated: 29 Apr 2021
Content for taxon pages is returned by Search API based on:
content_ids for world taxon pages; and
content_ids and supergroups for topic taxon pages.
A taxon page divides the content tagged to the taxon by its supergroup e.g: Guidance and Regulation for Funding and finance for students gov.uk/education/funding-and-finance-for-students. Each taxon page also shows a grid of sub-topic taxons at the next level of the taxonomy.
The worldwide taxonomy is rendered on different types of pages depending on whether the taxon has any children.
Taxon with children: a content item of type taxon that has
child_taxonslinks. None of those child taxons' links have
child_taxons, in which case we display an accordion view: gov.uk/world/afghanistan
Taxon without children: a content item of type taxon that doesn't have
child_taxonslinks. In this case we display an leaf view: gov.uk/world/living-in-afghanistan
Taxon with associated taxons: a content item of type taxon that has
associated_taxonslinks. In this case the tagged content of the taxon will include content that is directly tagged to it and also content that has been tagged to any of the associated taxons.
