Viewing Sub-Categories


(Bloodshot Pico) #1

Hello,
I have been wondering about the sub-category and main category feature for a little while now and have noticed that when you click on the parent category it only shows the topics within that category. But it does not show the Sub-Categories anywhere, not even telling which ones are in the Main Category, so i was hoping that there’d be a feature to were you can be able to add this.

For Example:

I have a ‘Ban’ Category as the Main Category but then I have a few Sub-Categories for instance ‘Hub Ban’, ‘Ban 1’ and ‘Ban 2’.

But I can only see the topics from the Parent/Main Category which is, ‘Ban’ and there is no way of showing it’s Sub-Categories. Other than to go to the main pager and click Categories and scrolling down to the Category to find the Sub-Categories ins small print.

I’d like this to be a feature where you click the Main/Parent Category and then the Sub-Categories are at the top and it only shows the first post in those Categories but it will also have the titles of the Categories. Then the topics/posts within the Parent Category will be place beneath, or you can turn them off with a drop down menu switching from ‘Topics’ to ‘Sub-Categories’ and ‘All’

I think you’re looking for the “show subcategory list” site setting :wink:

Show subcategory list instead of topic list when entering a category.

Is there no way of having both of them, as I said I think it would be a great idea to add the first post from each Sub-Category to the Main Category at the top. And then you can switch around using the drop down menu, i just think it’d be nicer looking and easier to navigate for users.

The way it currently works without that setting, the posts from all subcategories are mixed together. Are posts only occurring in one of the subcategories with any regularity?

No, it’s just you have to click on the drop down menu to go to the Sub-Category you want or find it in the Category section etc. I just thought it would be a nice idea and if you’re asking if they are all the same thing then yes, for a Category I want to set up it all would be the same thing.
