Creating sub-categories (free account)

I am trying out Yola under a free account. I've noticed that each (blog) page have its own world for the categories and tags-- no programming needed. However, I am lost with creating sub-categories in one page. Is this inherent or is this available on paid/upgraded account?

Hello,
Are you referring to creating something like a submenu on a non-blog page? Or are you looking for the same type of widgets, such as Categories, Recent Posts, etc on a standard webpage (not blog page)? If you can tell me a bit more I will be able to give further assistance.

Hi again, Emmy.

Recall The Vermi Bin. There's a page called "Directory" - Members' Directory actually. I am taking advantage of the category/tag to provide a list.

Here's what this page's category should be:

Luzon/Visayas/Mindanao -parent
.....Region -child
.........Province -great grandchild
..............Municipality -great great grandchild
..............City
...
.....Region

I can only create the parent (topmost and only level allowed).

I'd like to do the same (using different categorization and tagging) with the other pages should this be possible.

Is this supported? what is the closest approach? the assumption is that no hack or programming, only what is inherent with the sitebuilder.

I am very satisfied about having different categories and tags on different pages. At least for The Vermi Bin.

Thanks again for your prompt attention.

Hello RolandKnight,
I am still not completely sure I understand what you are referring to in terms of "tags", I believe I see what you mean about setting up a hierarchy of pages though. You can create submenu's using the submenu feature available on Premium Styles. The style you are using is a free style so the submenu feature is not available. If you were to upgrade to Yola Silver you would then be able to use this feature. Here are some links with more info on Yola Silver, submenus and creating subpages, I hope one of these options will be helpful:

1. Yola Silver FAQ
2. Creating submenu's Video
3. Creating subpages

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi Emmy,

Forget the tags, subpages and submenu (won't be able to do submenu until i go silver) for now.

I would like to know if it is possible to have sub-category. if so, how to implement it.

Hi RolandKnight,
Submenus are a part of the Silver package, however, you might find some alternatives for drop down menus here: YolaCodes Site

I know that cascading submenu is implemented in the silver package. what i am really concern is about hierarchical sub-category. are you familiar with how wrdprss (sorry for referencing) implement hierarchical subcategory? i was looking for something like that.

Hi Roland,

From what I understand you would like a visible, deep, hierarchy for your site. The submenus are only a two-level hierarchy at the moment. Subpages are not hierarchical, and are displayed in a list format. I have passed this idea onto our developers, for them to consider for future releases.

I hope this answers your question?

Thanks Justine. The idea of hierarchical subpages for future release will certainly be a good thing for us the users.

However, I think I had presented it not quite right. Here it is again. I'm actually referring to subcategories. Something like...

Country (Parent Category)
State (Child Subcategory)
County (Grandchild Subcategory)

Say I wanted a list of all blogs/entries relating to a particular state (e.g. California). Or maybe of a certain county?

If I am the blog writer, I can maybe click all of those [sub]categories (e.g. US, California, Sta Rosa).

I can only create one (1) category. So I was wondering if creating a subcategory is only available with paid/silver account. Or maybe I clobbered my sitebuilder making it unavailable. Or is not yet supported.

Hi RolandKnight,
I think the closest we are going to come to helping you accomplish this is the idea of creating subpages manually, then you can make it as deep as you would like, but it does need to be done manually with links. Here is a link to the tutorial again: Creating subpages.

I hope you are able to accomplish what you would like to do.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

in wordpress one can create nested subcategories. in which my blog entry can have more than one category.

anyway, i may not be expressing the idea well. let's just forgo this one.

yes Emmy I will explore subpages just to work with sitebuilder's environ, that is, no programming. It is my objective to evaluate this thoroughly so I can recommend to my clients that they can ask one of their employees to do webpages even if they don't know a thing about programming. it will make my life easier.

For this topic, I would like to thank everyone who have participated and shared their ideas. For their patience. For their time.

Respectfully,
Sir Roland

ps. Brianna can we (temporarily) close this topic (for) now? Let's archived it under "unsolved mysteries"
