Categories and subcategories allow you to easily organise all the content of your website. In this way, the users visiting your classifieds website will be able to browse all the items and quickly find what they are looking for.

To manage categories access your Dashboard → Categories. To add new category just click the button Add New on your right and then Edit to enter a name. You can provide a short description of the category you are creating or edit it later – it is only for your own use and it will not be visible for users visiting your website. There is also a possibility to set an “Expiration date” for your ads in each category, for example, for seasonal things, services or products. Note that by introducing zero or leaving it blank, the category won’t have any expiration date.

To add a subcategory you should act as if you would like to create another category and then just drag it and drop it in the category you choose. Please note that the category must be “rolled out” in order to drop a subcategory there. If not, you will only change the location of this category.

To delete the category or subcategory you just need to select Delete. You might also choose Disable so the category/subcategory is not visible on the website but it will appear on your dashboard marked in red. Remember that by deleting a category, all the listings associated to it will also be deleted.

Usually all the classifieds websites allow users to choose only among subcategories. However, you have an option to let them choose a parent categories on your websites from your Dashboard → Settings → General Settings → Category Settings.
