On this link http://www.jasperoosterveld.com/2011/09/creating-knowledge-centre-with_07.html, they define a managed term store hierarchy , then users can add categories when adding new wiki articles if the keyword is not in the term store hierarchy . so does this mean that we can use Term store and categories to refer to each other, and what are the differences between the two?


A category is a predefined Term Set that is made in the term store management.

    if your term set is open users can add terms and be displayed in the term store hierarchy – Vandoorn Kevin May 6 '13 at 14:51
  • thanks again for your reply, but on which level and under which parent term set the new category will displayed??, as users will just type the new category name without specifying the parent term set when adding a new category on the fly. – John Peter May 6 '13 at 16:13

    whenever users add a new term i advice they use the panel. If the click the square next to the text box of the categories they are able to point out where the new term should be added – Vandoorn Kevin May 7 '13 at 6:02
