Portal Category Grouping


We have lots of categories now and would like a way to show them by Group on the portal. For example a dropdown that shows “Tech support, Maintenance, etc…”. Once the end user selects Maintenance I would like it to show the categories in the Maintenance group and so on.

I can stumble my way around PHP, but by no means am I an expert, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


If I understand correctly I think what would be needed is Javascript here. So you’d want a first selection and then a second?

Often the categories are left more high leven and then when you select one there’s a category specific custom field that can show. However, if you already have it all setup as categories that would be a lot of reworking.
