Andy, is there any way to cascade categories.

I.E.

Periodicals: American History: American Heritage
Periodicals: American History: An Occasional Bulletin
Periodicals: American History: Early American Life

etc.

Ideally the primary category would show under the categories list. The list of titles would show when the category was clicked, then the list of individual listings would display when the sub-category was clicked.

If this is possible now, I don't know how to set it up. Using the colons as displayed above does not seem to work. If it is not available it would be a very nice addition.

Hi Andy,

I was just looking into the sub-category feature myself. It would be nice to be able to use colons as John suggested, or to us "--" like LOC subject headings, or, better yet, either one. I've tried using colons and I have tried dashes, but the site seems to interpret them oddly. My site www.roundaboutbookstore.com shows what happens. If I use dashes the first subject seems to work, but the subheading gets lost. If I use a colon both subjects show up, but only one has books listed in it.

As a quick fix, it would be nice to just be able to list them and have books show up:

History
History--American History
History--American History--Revolutionary War
etc.

Right now, books like /A Historical and Biographical Genealogy of the Cushmans/ which I sent as Town History--Genealogy show up in Town History, but not in Genealogy, and Town History--Geneaology isn't listed at all.

I somehow missed this when Jim 1st posted it.

The : should work... when I populate categories that is how they are set up.

For example:

Books:Literature & Fiction:Foreign Language Fiction : Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, More Languages & More

Setup a couple of book with sub-categories and give me the sku/isbns and I"ll check it out.
