Version 3.0 of the eGMS required that web pages specify one or more categories from the GCL using the 'eGMS.Subject.Category' metadata field. Version 3.1 of the eGMS now requires one or more categories from IPSV term instead, using the 'DC.Subject' field.
The tests for the Subject field are as follows;
For an interim period, Sitemorse will be checking for both 'eGMS.Subject.Category' and 'DC.Subject', and both GCL and IPSV - sites using either eGMS 3.0 or eGMS 3.1 will be able to achieve full marks on the eGMS Sitemorse Mark.
Please note however that at some future date (to be announced), we will discontinue support for eGMS 3.0 and sites not using 'DC.Subject' with IPSV will be marked down.
If multiple category terms belong to the same schema they may be included in a single Subject field, separated with a semicolon. Alternatively each field may be placed in separate meta tags to assign additional categories.
