Hi Steven, I’ve been trying to figure out how to deal with this for days and I am about to go nuts. Perhaps there isn’t even a solution for this… So I thought I’d just tell you what I need to have and you can tell me if it’s even possible or suggest a workaround.
I am programming my associations page. This is an association for translators. I want prospect customers to find these translators by three subsequent categories:
First: by topic (e.g. legalese, marketing, medicine, etc. – 10 categories in total)
2nd: by source language (currently 31)
3rd: by target language (currently 31)
So if you were to find a translator for your medical report from your last holiday you spent in Mexico, you’d first sort by topic, then by source language (spanish) and then by target language (english) and see a list of translators who can do the job.
What I have so far is: Parent category “topic”, parent category “source lang.” and parent category “target lang.”. Each of these three parent categories have 10 resp. 31 child categories.
Any idea how Ican do this without creating 10 x 31 x 31 pages?

Tile Plus doesn’t have this feature, cMap does, but it is experimental and not yet supported. See this post.
I think that would work. Basically a user could select any number of categories and the only results shown would be those that are within the selected categories.
The only other option would to be to custom code a template that would do what your need.03/19/2013 at 9:20 pm #254626
Okay … I have the cmap activated – and now? I don’t get it.03/20/2013 at 8:49 pm #254680
Use this shortcode:
This will change the category single-select to a category multi-select. With that enable, a user can choose, the topic, the source lang and the dest lang and will be presented with only the entries that are in all three of the selected categories.03/21/2013 at 12:07 pm #254720
I added it but it doesn’t look different than before.
What am I missing?

I see, you’re using an older version of cMap, log into your Purchase History page and download the latest version of cMap and install it right overtop of the current version.
QuickTip: The latest version of your purchases will always be in your purchase history.03/25/2013 at 10:17 am #254981
Great! Do you know if I could set up the search bar with only one or two specific root categories?
I.e. a search bar that only shows the childcategories of a specific parent category?

[connections enable_category_multi_select=true enable_category_by_root_parent='false' category='x,y']
Make sure to type this in manually, please do not copy/paste.
category x and y would be the root parent categories you want to limit the list to.
