Exercise 4.3: Add fields to content types

In this exercise we’ll add the State/Territory field to job postings and to News and Media. For this exercise we have a controlled vocabulary, limiting input to one State/Territory, so we’ll use a select list.

Add the State/Territory field to Job postings

  1. Go to Structure → _Content types.

  2. Click on Manage fields to the right of the Job posting content type name.

  3. To associate the State/Territory vocabulary with a particular content type we need to add our new Term reference field.

  4. Under /admin/structure/types/manage/job_posting/fields, click Add field. Under Add a new field, select ReferenceTaxonomy term, then complete the fields as shown in the screenshot below:

Add the existing State taxonomy field to News and Media

Now that job postings can be categorised by states/territories, News and media articles need to use the same State/Territory vocabulary. Follow the instructions above but add the existing taxonomy field to the News and Media content type.

Configure the form display and page display to show the new field.
