You can create a list of categories for describing places. These categories can be used as a filter when browsing places.
This article provides the procedure for managing place categories.
Place categories provide a useful way for community managers to classify places, so users have an easier time finding them when searching and browsing. These categories are created in the Admin Console, and can then be applied to any place in the place settings when creating or editing a place. A community can have up to twelve (12) categories defined.
Note that the place categories are different from the categories used to classify content inside places. For more information, see Managing Content Categories Using Admin Console.
To manage the place categories, navigate to Admin Console > System > Settings > Place Categories, where:
- To create a category:
- Click Add a category button.
- Type a category name in the provided field.
- Click Save.
- To hide a category from users who are creating and editing places, click Hide next to the category in the list.
Hiding a category also makes it invisible when browsing by category. If you choose to show the category later, it will become visible again in all these locations.
- To delete a category from the list permanently, click delete icon next to the category.
When your list of categories is the way you want it, click Save to apply your changes.
