How to follow the GUI for class groups.

Getting started

VIVO comes with a default set of class groups. You can rename them, reorder them, create new groups or delete existing ones. You can also move classes from one group to another, but that is covered in Edit classes.

What to do

From the VIVO Site Admin page, navigate to the Class Groups page.

You can add a new class group, or click on the name of an existing group to edit it. You can also create a new class, but that involves editing the ontology.

You can change the name of a group, change its display rank, or delete it.

When the index page is displayed, the class groups are shown in order of ascending display rank.

Classes that aren't included in any of the groups are not displayed on the index page. If you delete a class group, the classes that were in it will not be displayedon the index page unless you assign them to new groups.

Class groups and their membership can also affect the contents of managed pages. "Browse"-style pages display the contents of some or all of the classes in a single group, so the structure of your class groups will affect how these pages can be configured. Find more information in the section on Page management.

Class groups are also used to provide facets in search results.
