Resolved nested categories?

    it would be cool to see nested categories, since im doing location based items/places. so like north america > usa > texas ... etc. i think we're limited to one category right now (no sub-categories).

    Im not following you... Showcase has always used a hierarchical category system (same as XFRM categories), so you can have sub categories, sub sub categories sub sub sub categories etc..

    North America
    >> USA
    >> >> Texas
    >>> >> >> Dallas

    When viewing the North American Category, its going to display all items in North America, USA, Texas and Dallas. When viewing the Texas cateogry, its going to display items from Texas and Dallas.

    If you add an item to Dallas, the breadcrumbs is going to be Showcase >> North America >> USA >> Texas >> Dallas

    This is a standardized system in XF2 now (in XF1, each addon had to build its own, however, in XF2, there are controller helpers, functions, macros etc that addons (to include XFRM and XFMG both use).

    Its all good :D After I posted, I thought that maybe you might be wanting something a bit different (like using Flat Category system and being able to set multiple categories to a single item).

    i thought about the one item to multiple categories thing, but then i thought it's probably just best to use tags for that. maybe we could add some kind of tags widget for showcase items?

    I've been kind holding out on doing those specialized ones in hopes of some more core widget definitions (like Trending and Tags). I might end up having to do my own.
