I'm new to Plone, so please excuse me for the probably stupid question
Let's say we're building an animal shelter website. Shelter staff adds a new animal on arrival. Add form contains some fields like:
- name (if known);
- tattoo (if have);
- chip (if have);
- specie (dog, cat, bird);
- breed (particular breed if known);
Obviously, we add custom content-types Animal(Item) class AnimalFolder(Container).
But how to store species, gender, breeds or other classifiers (catalogues?) in Plone-based system?
Should I use folders to build hierarchical references like
Species (folder) > Dog (folder) > Shepherd (folder) > Animal (item)?
Or maybe there other concepts or tools for work with hierarchical taxonomomical systems? What is common practice for Plone projects
I would appreciate any advice or reading link.
Thanks & have a good day,
