Categorizing view panes:

Taxonomy is used to categorize content so it is visible in desired locations. If you would like to categorize your view pane by using taxonomy:
  1. 1.
    Ensure the content type has a category.
  2. 2.
    Note down the term number that the category is associated with. The term number is located in the url on your screen (ex. https://.../term/109/...).
  3. 3.
    Add the term number to the Category space, when configuring your view pane.
  4. 4.
    Select Finish.

Always save the page when you are done customizing.
