      Hi John,
      Your document is not displaying as a simply html document. Instead, I see the code. Offhand I don't see what the problem is, unless it is something in the xml coding.
      Thanks,
      Kelly

      Please have a look at my deconstruction of Meredith's list and let me know what you think.
       
      Thanks,.

      OK, so I mashed all content types that I could remember or find into this text file. Use or toss as you see fit...some are straight web content types, some are physical content types (objects), and to make matters even more confusing, some are physical content types associated with certain web content types. I am sure I am missing some, but this is what I've got. I would have to eyeball them to distinguish the physical from the web content types.
       
      Kind regards,
      Meredith

      Hi Meredith,

       

      I think a lot of us would be interested in seeing the sanitized list, if you are comfortable posting it to this forum. I’m always interested in the similarities and differences between different content type lists.

       

      Best regards,

      Hi Margaret,


      I have an old content type taxo that I helped to enhance in a previous life. Each content type was assigned a definition, publishing/archival .retention rules and customized metadata, which were accounted for in our CMS and internal doc mgt systems. We used the "content type" facet for many purposes in addition to flat classification purposes. It was used to:

       

      • render content to intranet, public website and extranets according to publishing and handling business rules and workflows
      • drive those content types to the correct specific areas of these web presences
      • serve as a complimentary facet to corporate taxo
      • customize content-type specific metadata in EDM system and CMS in addition to core metadata required of all web and document content
      • drive content delivery in the CRM so customers could get it on demand
      • drive content delivery to order management/logicsti cs system for our materials managers and shipping
      • distinguish between physical content that required print production and web content
      • records retention policies


      "Content types" also had its own governance model, because they propagated through multiple content publishing systems and websites, and required approval from the business owner and needed to pass feasibility with IT. Reason being that we had to make those changes on the CMS/DM sides for the content to publish to the right website areas and properly positions on the appropriate pages and filters (mainly through sql driven queries). If the positioning or coding on website backends was not possible or untimely, then we would have to kick it back to the business owners to scope again with us.

       

      I can email the sanitized content type list to you in a txt file if you like. It was for an engineering/ science related software company.

       

      Kind regards,

      Meredith Lavine

      Hello,

       

      In parallel to developing a subject-based taxonomy for our intranet content, we are also defining a flat list of “content types”. Examples of “content type” in our world include: form, policy, presentation, training material, report, brochure, newsletter, press release, etc. Does anyone have experience or information to share about 1) implementing and using similar content types, especially in a corporate intranet environment or 2) standard/best practices lists of content types?

      We plan to use this new piece of metadata for better content management, better governance around records retention policies, and search enhancements that allow users to filter by content type.

      While this isn’t a taxonomy question in the most strict sense of the word, I have a feeling that this community will have some very useful input. Thanks much!
