How To: Add a Product Taxonomy Category in Drupal Commerce 2

In the Urban Hipster Drupal Commerce 2 demo site, the catalog is made of up of a number of products grouped by taxonomy terms. These terms (Women, Men, Hats, Special, Clearance etc.) are grouped into Vocabularies (Category, Brand, Artist, Special, etc.), which can be referenced within a product in order to categorize it. A product can be assigned to multiple terms in multiple vocabularies, which allows us to create a variety of cataloging options.

We already have the catalog functionality configured using Apache Solr. So, in this Acro Media Tech Talk video, we quickly cover how to add new taxonomy terms and then add a product to the new term. It's easy!

Also, it's important to not that ANY content can be organized in this way, not just products. News, blogs, resources, videos, images, you name it! If it's content, it can be organized and filtered with taxonomy and Solr.
