    I am wondering how to set categories and tags for a content block in Sitefinity 4.1. 
    What I'm looking to do is create a course catalog.  So I have created the hierarchical category of High School (parent) and under that I have Mathematics, Science, etc (children).  With tags I go into more specifc topics like Algebra, Calculus, etc.

    Under content blocks I have added each course description, but how would I add a category or tag to this description.  Then be able to query for all courses under Mathematics > Algebra and have the list with description show up on a page.

    Is there a way to add categories and tags in the same manner as you can with blogs and news items?

    Thank you,

    Hello Stephanie,

    That's a tough one, you can add taxonomy to content blocks programatically, similar functionality has been discussed and we have provided a code sample here. However, What I'd recommend you is to take advantage of our Lists module as it offers you much more flexibility in terms of what you-re trying to achieve - you can add custom fields to lists, create parent-child lists and still use the same functionality as in content block. Please let me know if you need any additional information, and provide me with some additional details if the proposed solution does not suit your use case scenario.

    All the best,
