New minor features

'Go to top' button:

To improve the accessibility of all Haiku websites, we have added the functionlity of a 'Go to top' button on all Haiku websites. The 'Go to top' button will show to a user once they have scrolled down the page far engough to make good use of a 'Go to top' button. This functionality improves the accessibility of a Haiku website, and you will see it appear in the bottom right corner of any Haiku page.

Taxonomy update:

Due to deprecation of a certain type of selection widget, specifically the widget that we have previously used for the taxonomy library, we have had to change the way in which the taxonomy library now works. Overall the taxonomy works in a very similar way, but there is now a new quick edit form available to editors who want to add, edit or remove any categories from the system. The other change that this has come with, is where the categories are added to a content type. Rather than using the categories within the edit form on the 'Default' edit tab of an item of content, editors will now need to use the 'Categorization' tab. The documentation for the updated taxonomy library functionality can be found here.
