Add a sub-category to a sub-category


Is there a way to add a sub-cat to a sub-cat ?
I mean a sub-cat with a ‘parent’ sub-category ?

It seems it’s not possible ?

thank you for help.


AFAIK, there are only categories and subcategories. Sub-subcategories do not exist. Tags might be the best solution for that.

Thank you , what do you mean with ‘tags’ ?

There is a main common space, but each work group gets a category that has subs. With some subs, an extra sub is needed forcing a sub into a new master category which is inconvenient for managing/sorting the site’s structure…
