Categories can be used to group blog posts and offer another layer of structure for users to navigate in. They are essentially saved filters which can be used to build specific news pages on the Blog Overview.
Go to: General Configuration > Lively Blogs > Categories
There you can add, delete or edit categories. A category consists of one or multiple filters by labels, authors, spaces or space categories. All filters must be entered as a comma separated list.

If a color is added, the category will be displayed on the blog posts. These bubbles can be clicked on to view only blog posts from a single category.

Categories are also shown on the Blog Overview in form of Tabs.
