    Here’s an example of how I used topic prefixes in this way, on my cloud demo site:

    If you use Topic Prefixes -
    • You can make them required so one is always chosen.
    • The end user will choose one from a drop-down
    • Each prefix will automatically be linked in the topic lists. Clicking on it performs a search of all topic prefixes.
    • You can style them with CSS to make them colorful buttons like StackExchange if you wish.

    No problem I've another design.


    I'll have a tag for every company+product combo.


    So for Samsung-Mobile I'll create a tag :samsung-mobile


    To have user select it, I'll create a popup asking them to select company and then show it's corresponding products and combine both to map to pre-established tag id : company-product.


    Is this idea feasible?


    Like that of Stackexchange sites?


    Using this technique I'll have limited forums at the same time created focused forums.


    Only that for each url of tag company+product POST new thread should already have this tag pre-populated.


    I hope it should be straight forward by inserting a javascript file in the relevant template( something like forum create)

    This is not currently possible with tags alone. You can use a combination of tags and thread prefixes. To have hierarchal tags, it would require custom coding or the feature to be added to vBulletin.

    started a topic Need Category and subcategory in each thread

    Need Category and subcategory in each thread

    I want something like Stackexchange site tagging system but I need two level tags( parent-child).

    I've 1000 companies and each company has 5 products.

    There is going to be single Common forum.

    When we create a thread I want to select a company first in the tag then I want to select product name within the company in 2nd tag.


    For example:

    Thread1: Tag1: Samsung Sub-tag : mobile
    Thread2: Tag1: Sony Sub-tag: laptop

    So when I select Sony then in Sub-tags only Sony's products should come.

    What is the way to do it?

    VB already allows single level tagging.


    Something as explained in https://www.drupal.org/files/project...SHS_widget.png
