    [Forum] Sections, categories & category section

    Good day,

    ** * My site will list various activities like climbing. I use sections to list all outdoor activities.*

    I have a category widget which is by region.*

    People may browse all activities in the sections or they can click on a region and see all activities available in that region.*

    No problem here.*

    My question, can I create a separate group of categories? *

    Categories: region, height

    All visible on all CMS pages

    Categories belong to sections so will only be visible within that section or, IIRC, any parent section.

        Re: Sections, categories & category section

        Thanks Edwin, I read that article before. I do understand the difference I guess what I am looking for is 2 sets of categories but VB doesn't support that structure so far. What I was thinking was when creating an article I could then use "tags" sort of speak and each tag would be a separate type of category.

        Thanks for the reply, you guys are doing a fantastic job.
