    I have a motorcycle forum on which I installed the Showcase. I'm not sure how I could use the Prefix feature. I realize that I may not have a need for it but I'm looking for ideas on how others have used it or how I could use it. Thanks.

    I have a motorcycle forum too.
    I use the prefix for the manufacturer (BMW, Aprilia, Honda Suzuki .......) and the models like ( GSX-R1000 K1/2 - K3/4 - K5/6 .............)

    Prefixes are great for being able to filter out things you don't and just get a listing of things you want to see.. They work in conjunction with Categories. Some people don't like to have 100's of categories and instead they'd rather have a shorter list of Categories and use Prefixes to be able to filter down..

    ie..

    Honda
    -- 3 WHeeler
    -- Dirt Bike
    -- Trail Bike
    -- Mini Bike

    vs

    Having only Honda and then creating Prefixes for the 4 sub cats instead.

    JUST AN EXAMPLE lol

    YOu can also do things like Ride of the Week or Month.... Then people can filter by that prefix and have a list of all the "Ride of the Month" showcases.
