There are conditions in which a user will want to select and use only specific CMS Pages within the CMS Tree. This is different from the “Navigation” element, which selects groups of CMS Pages within the CMS Tree. These specific CMS Pages are selected for navigation features within web pages.
Items selected within the Taxonomy Navigation should be organized using a taxonomy style for best results.
What is Taxonomy?
We should see taxonomy as a tree of topics that have similar characteristics. To organize the tree we give a name or title at each level of the tree. The title should describe or identify the characteristics of all topics that would be contain under the given level of the tree. The further we traverse down the taxonomy tree the more detailed the characteristics and similar the topics at each level become.
The following diagram is an example of a taxonomy tree that consists of topics of animals:
Dog Wolf Coyote Cat Tiger Lion
If a user wanted to create a taxonomy tree of "Pet", they can make a separate taxonomy with "Dog" and "Cat" listed under "Pet".

A taxonomy can include multiple levels of sub-taxonomies. This selects how many levels down the taxonomy hierarchy the user can select for navigation.
