Publishing Site - Connect to Catalog

With the Previous section, we have completed the Navigation as well. Now, we are in the last stage. That is, now we are going to establish a connection to an existing catalog.

1. Go to Publishing - Site Setting -> Manage Catalog Connections


2. Click on Connect to Catalog


3. Click on Connect – “Authoring - Pages”


4. Select the Options as above.

a. Connection Integration – Integrate the Catalog into my site

b. Navigation Hierarchy – DemoTag

c. Root term of hierarchy – select the termset

d. Catalog Item URL Behaviour – Make URLs relative to this site

e. Catalog Item URL format – Construct a URL format from catalog Properties.

f. Category Page – LandingPage.aspx

g. Item Page – ContentPage.aspx


With this, we are done with the Settings portion. Many of these settings can also be done using PowerShell. But I am not concentrating on them. Let us focus on the WebPart creation on the consecutive sections.

Let us see about the WebPart Creation using Visual Studio in Part9

Happy Coding.
