I need a 'location_channel' with location entries.
These entries should have 3 multi-select boxes containing different categories.
Select #1 - Location Type
Select #2 - Location Style
Select #3 - Location Era
- 10th Century
- 11th Century
I tried to do this with native EE categories, but it seems it's not possible to add multiple 'categories'-fields. And it wouldn't be easily selectable when you have 100+ categories.
Also looked at Playa, but it handles entries not categories.
So my question is:
What is the best way/practice to handle this case?
Am I overlooking something to do this with native categories?
Should I make use of a category_channel & add the 'categories' as channel_entries?
Or should I use 'Tags' instead?
Keep in mind:
- easily manageable by the admin
- only the admin can add/remove categories
- on the front we need a 'search/filter' that can handle these categories
