Brightspot CMS User Guide

Creating a site sub-category

You can also create site categories as sub-categories of existing site categories. This is useful if you have a large number of sites and want a way to categorize them into even smaller groupings.

To create a site sub-category:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings.
  2. Under Site Categories, click New Site Category. The New Site Category widget appears.

  3. Expand the Parent field and select the site category that will serve as the parent of the new site sub-category.

    You must create the parent site categories before creating the child site categories. If you do not create the parent site categories first, they will not be available in the Parents field for selection.

  4. In the Name field, type a name for the site sub-category.
  5. In the Sites field, click add_circle_outline. A selection field appears.
  6. Click the selection field, and select sites associated with this site sub-category.
  7. Click Save.

In the image above, you can see the name of this new site category is "Brightspot CMS User Guide," and it is nested under the site category named "Documentation." The new site sub-category has three sites associated with it.
