Creating subcategories in the Member (subscriber only) area; how to build nested categories

Recommended Posts

In the member area, I'd like to provide a list of categories. This addition of categories on the left is already built into the sqsp builder:

Next, when a member enters a category, I'd like them to find subcategories, each of which contains a bundle of videos. However, in the builder, once I enter into a category (say, for example, the Yoga category), the only option is to upload videos. I could not find a native method of producing a subcategory at this stage:

I would really appreciate any help on solving this issue! How should one go about using code to circumvent this limitation - or am I missing something elementary here?

Thank you!

Your screenshots show a Videos page. This type of page can be added to member and non-member areas of a Squarespace website and it has a single level of categorisation. It is not yet possible to add nested categories, even with code.

If you'd like to lobby Squarespace for this feature to be added, please contact Squarespace Customer Care using a support ticket.
