How to add child categories

Create or edit the category and select the parent category.


  • Search over the map and ajax search works with custom taxonomies ONLY if you add 1 category to each property. Same applies for action taxonomy. DON’T ATTACH A PROPERTY TO multiple categories or multiple actions. 
  • You can use child categories and assign the property just to the child. Then the property will show in results when searching by parent category as well. 

Pins are built only for 1 category, 1 action or 1 category + 1 action. If you add multiple categories for 1 property, the first alphabetical category + action combination is attached to the property.

Search over map filters pins. Since there is 1 pin for the property, the map will show 1 pin only for properties with multiple categories attached. Same will happen in Half Map filtering.  So you may see “no results found” in the map, but in the list, you do have results.

Hwo to control the map zoom for taxonomy pages

These pages: advanced search results, properties list, taxonomies pages behave differently if google maps are set as a header option.

On these pages, the map pins and properties in the list are in sync.

Because of this, the manual zoom you set in theme options google maps settings or in page options google maps options will be disregarded.
