Managing taxonomies

A default taxonomy of General is provided and cannot e deleted. You can add new taxonomies with content categories and you can add content categories to the General taxonomy.

Some taxonomies are shown as 'STATIC'. You can't edit those that belong to third-parties such as UNSPSC (maintained by the United Nations Development Programme).
