What are article categories?

These are how you will categorise all of your articles, you can have as many as you like. They are broad terms which are what each article will belong to. For example an article category may be 'Health and Safety' and you can add all articles to this category if they concern health and safety, making them easy to find.

You can also group articles within categories. For example you may want 'Safety' to be its own category within the 'Health and Safety' category. To do this you simply create another article category but make sure that 'Health and Safety' is selected as its parent category. These are called multi-level categories e.g. Health and safety - Safety - Fire Marshall list
