Admins can change the "type" of any topic to one of these: Category, Collection, Tag. Here are the differences between these types:
- Category: It acts as a folder. You cannot assign content to categories directly. It does not get displayed in the "all topic" page. The only use-case if to gather some related topics under a single category (which is not a very popular use-case).
- Collection: It has its dedicated landing page with follow button, so members can follow their favorite collections of topics. Collections can get listed under the "all topics" page. Collection is the default "topic type" when an admin creates a topic from Admin Panel> Topics> Add Topic.
- Tag: It is similar to hashtag in Twitter and Instagram. Tag has lower importance than collection. Tag does not get displayed in the "all topics" page. Its landing page doesn't have pictures or follow buttons. If you want a topic to have a dedicated landing page with a picture and follow button, you need to change the type to Collection. Tag is the default "topic type" when a member (not an admin) creates a topic.
To change the type of topics to one of these three types: Create the topic> Click on the topic> Edit> Change the Type> Save the changes.
