An essential part of your directory's search experience is the ability to filter results by categories. Below we will provide an overview of this module. 


The first option on this page is a category keyword search option to make it easier to find a specific category. 




To the right of this module you will find an option to import categories. 




The drop down to the left of this will allow you to switch the category order in the website's front end.
