Display categories and then sub categories which you can filter

Question

Site URL: https://marigold-crane-bhtr.squarespace.com/

Hi all, 

I'm wondering if on the category page (i.e. Dance) I can display sub categories or tags which will then filter the blog posts. Similar to this website https://pointemagazine.com/category/cross-training, they have the category Health & Body and then sub-categories 'ask amy', 'higher ed', 'view all', etc...

Is this possible with Squarespace, will I need custom code? 

I know I can add an archive blog with tags or categories but those will be tags across all the categories. I'd like them to be on the category page and then filter by the three sub-categories.

On Squarespace you can set categories on a blog page and filter by them using category links. I'm not sure what you mean by "sub-categories" because blog pages don't have nested categories. Blog categories are all "top-level" categories and you can only filter by one category at once.

There's a third party plugin called Universal Filter that improves filtering but this may only be necessary if you want to filter by several categories at the same time.

If you have further questions then I recommend that you share your site with us (you'll need to set a public password and share it with us) so that we can see which version you are using (7.0 or 7.1) and how it is configured.
