The only catalogue I'm using is called "Links", which is basically a section full of urls, but separated into categories

When people click on the "Links" in the side menu, I have it set to go to /portal/site/index.php?page=catalogues&type=index&id=links
so it takes them directly to the links category in the catalogue (since i'm not using any other categories there)

But when they get to that links index page, the parent categories AND the children are all shown

example of how it should be:
  • Affiliates (6 entries)
  • Other Links (8 entries, 2 subcategories)
    -Modern (6 entries)
    -Retro (2 entries)

what is actually being shown:
  • Affiliates (6 entries)
  • Modern (6 entries)
  • Other Links (8 entries, 2 subcategories)
  • Retro (2 entries)

Did I overlook a setting to fix that? Or is there some code I have to alter to make it show up right or to hide the children from showing up on the index page of the Links catalogue?

You've sent them to the index screen, which isn't the same thing. You need to send them to actual links category. A link to that category should be in the entry-points tool in the menu editor.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
