How to create drop down for categories/attributes


Currently when someone visits my website they see the category and then all items in it. Also they see my attributes and all the items in it. The problem is that the side bar is really big.

You can see this in categories for Jobs – JobHive for example.

What I would like to see is a side bar where users can the the categories/attributes, click on one, and then see what is inside it. You can think of it as a sort of drop down menu. This saves a lot of space.

A user would thus see:

Category A (arrow pointing down)
Category B (arrow pointing down)
Category C (arrow pointing down)

Then clicks on the arrow pointing down and sees everything inside the category.

Can this be done?

This is something that I would like to see.


Sorry, there’s no simple code snippet for this, it would require a custom implementation. If customizations beyond the available features are required for your site, please consider hiring someone for custom work

Is there any way then to make the categories/atributes area smaller then, or take less space?


This is possible with a simple CSS snippet, for example (How to add custom code snippets - HivePress Help Center):

.hp-listing__categories.hp-listing__category {
 font-size: 10px;

Please note that it can require further customization.
