How do I create a subcategory?

All categories on our system are created in the same way (through the add category page).

The difference between categories and subcategories is explained in this article. Briefly, what makes a category a subcategory is that it has a parent category assigned to it.

To assign a parent category, when adding/editing the category scroll to the 'parent categories' section and select the category's parent category from the drop down list.

You can assign up to 3 parent categories to a category so to select another click the '+ add another' link and another drop down list will appear.


Category structures can be confusing, particularly if you haven't had any experience with them in the past so please do contact us if you have any questions.
