Hey there. I've just watched Bertrand's video on Taxonomies and am now trying to set that up in a custom module using FeatureEventHandlers and Migrations.cs. Can someone give me a hand here?

I want a Body part and an Image field added to the a Country taxonomy term. I've got this so far:

public int UpdateFrom18()
ContentDefinitionManager.AlterPartDefinition("AlbumPart", builder =>
builder.WithField("Country", fld =>
    .WithSetting("DisplayName", "Country")
    .WithSetting("TaxonomyFieldSettings.Taxonomy", "Country")
    .WithSetting("TaxonomyFieldSettings.LeavesOnly", "False")
    .WithSetting("TaxonomyFieldSettings.SingleChoice", "False")
    .WithSetting("TaxonomyFieldSettings.Hint", "Select as many countries as you like.")
return 19;

I want to add lines to also create the Body part and Image fields.

Thanks as always!

Have you considered creating a part, attaching the desired fields to this part and then attaching this to your Taxonomy type.
ContentDefinitionManager.AlterPartDefinition("MyPart", cfg =>
   cfg.WithField("Description", field => field.OfType("HtmlField"))
ContentDefinitionManager.AlterTypeDefinition("MyTaxonomy", cfg =>
