This tab is divided in 2 sections:


  1. Search Visibility

1. Search Visibility



1. Search Results Priority: Order in which members with this account level will appear in search results. 0 is the highest priority.

For example: If you set this to 10. Members in this membership will only select up to 10 categories total, including Tops, subs and sub-subs.  

Enter 'all' to auto-list members in all the available sub categories. 

Enter 'unlimited' to allow members to select as many categories as they wish.


3. Max. Location Limit: Maximum geographic locations a member can list in. 

You can also input 'all' to auto list members in all locations.
