Archive block to display location

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://ilovecreatives.com/creative-directory

The site I linked is an example of what I'm trying to do. I'm setting up a similar style of directory page in Squarespace and I'm trying to figure out how to do a location dropdown like they've done here. I used a CSS Viewer browser extension and it says that they've used an Archive block, which is what I initially tried, but there is no option for Location when I insert an Archive block. There are two other dropdowns, so I'm pretty sure they haven't just input locations as Categories or Tags, or if they did, they've found a way to filter the display so only certain categories or tags appear in certain dropdowns. Does anyone know how to do this?

I have figured out the summary block workaround to display locations as a list, but that's not what I was hoping for. If anyone has any suggestions, I appreciate it!

They are using the Universal Filter plugin, a powerful third party addon.
