I'm having a bit of trouble getting my head around this issue and I'm probably over thinking it as well as just have spent too much time "in" it :) So i'm hoping someone can straighten this out for me.

I have a Business channel with 2 Category Groups: State/City (category id = 9) and Businesses (category id = 11).

State/City should be self-explanatory as those have a State for the Parent and City for Children.

Businesses has this setup (some Categories have children some don't):

enter image description here So some entries are in Colorado and Denver BUT also in Bars > Dive

I need to start on the State level, then to the City, then to the Category then a Sub-category if there is one. IF not then I just want to show the listings in those categories.

I've been working on this for a while and haven't had any luck with it. I always seem to get "close" then at the end I don't have the listings showing by City/State AND the Business type that it is.

Without writing a ton of {if segment_5 !='' AND segment_6 ==''} etc... I'm not sure how to drill down to the listings.

So I'm hoping there are people out there that can help me "un-complicate" this as this SHOULD work but I'm probably missing something.

Thanks for the help comrades!

I'm not clear on what you want your output to be, but check out the functionality of Low Seg2Cat and/or Category Sorted Entries to see if either can be helpful...

  • The output is simple. I have hundreds of businesses entered. Some are in Boulder, CO...some in Denver. They are listed in Categories (City/State and Businesses). I just want these organied: By State > City > Business Type > Sub-Business Type if there are additional categories, then finally a listing page with the appropriate Categories (City/State AND Business Category) does that help?

  • "I just want these organied: By State > City > Business Type > Sub-Business Type" are each of these pages or is this all on one screen? If these are each pages, I think Solspace Super Search might be useful - you wouldn't be thinking in terms of URL segments, but rather constructing category queries. Dec 6, 2013 at 18:56
