Sub-Categories in Coppermine.....Want To Ask Before I Pay.
« on: August 04, 2011, 04:57:06 am »

Hello, I know this question has been asked but the thread are pretty old so Im not sure if this has been added yet.

Basically this is what Im looking for. I have a Category, then I have an album and inside the album I have pictures. Is there a way to create it this way:

Category, Sub-Category, Album.


I have athletic clothing for sell so I want to display it like this:

User visits homepage and see's the Categories like MLB, NBA, NHL, etc.....User clicks MLB, inside MLB i have Atlanta Braves, Arizona Diamond Backs, Baltimore Orioles, etc.....user clicks Atlanta Braves, inside Atlanta Braves is where I display all the pictures of the Atlanata Braves hats.....right now is doesnt allow me to do that. Is this a feature thats available?

What version of Coppermine are you using? 

The Category / sub-category / album option has been implemented  in Coppermine 1.5x.

Im sorry, Im running the lastest version but I didnt explain it right now that I look. I actually need one more sub category. Like this:

T-Shirts - MLB - Atlanta Braves - Pictures of Atlanta Braves.

Is this what you are talking about?

Parent Category -> T-shirts
             |
Sub-Category -> MLB
             |
Sub-Sub-Category -> Atlanta Braves   <-- shouldn't this be the album? 
             |                                                       You can have any number of albums.
             |                                                       One for each team.
             |
Album name -> Pictures         <-- sounds redundant to me..
        / | | | \
Pictures in album of Atlanta Braves


You should be able to nest a category under a category, then create another category and simply nest it under the sub-category to create the what you want.   Did you try it?  You should really try it first.  You can always undo what you did by deleting the album, category, etc.

You can nest categories as much as you want. What you cannot do is to create sub-albums in albums.
