I am following see: https://www.onehippo.org/11/library/concepts/plugins/taxonomy/category-detail-view-editor-customization.html
Some questions in this regard–
- To add a field on a Taxonomy editor…I would have to create a New Module(plugin) in the Hippo Application Project is this right…?
- if so is there any other way I could avoid using a new Module, rather make changes in cms …?
Please let me know in this regard.
Since such plugin extension lives in the CMS, you don't necessarily have to create a Maven module for that, that you'd use as dependency in the CMS. You can also put your sources in cms/main/java. Be sure that not only compiled classes but also any html/css end up in the cms.war.
Based on the comments above I was able to put the sources on cms/main/java and successfully added extra field on the taxonomy editor,
However I have one issue I wanted to populate this field with value provided by a component on site module, is there a better approach I could take here. Please let me know.
