Hi! i need some help to build a listing website the way should work is like this: the bold is the categories and link

CITIES                                   /// CATEGORY  ------ (TEMPLATE = CITIES)

----------City                            /// SUBCATEGORY OF CITIES  ------ (TEMPLATE = CITY)

TOWNS                              //CATEGORY - ( SHOW ALL TOWNS ASSIGNED TO CITY SUBCATEGORY ABOVE ) (TEMPLATE = TOWNS)

------------Town       ///SUB CATEGORY OF TOWNS - ( SHOW ALL TOWN ASSIGNED TO TOWNS CATEGORY ABOVE ) (TEMPLATE = TOWN)

TYPES                                   /// CATEGORY - (OF SHOP TYPES, LIKE (RESTAURANT, CAFE BAR, HOTEL) )  (TEMPLATE = TYPES)

----------Type                            /// SUBCATEGORY OF TYPES  (TEMPLATE = TYPE)

SHOPS                                   /// CATEGORY

-----------RESTAURANT DESTROS  (LETS SAY THIS RESTAURANT BELONGS TO City = Chania, Towns = Kydonia, Town = Platanias, Type = Restaurant )

-----------CAFE BAR SUNLIGHT

-----------CLUB DANCE TIME

AND SO ON.........

So when a visitor come to site and clik CITIES he see each City that assign to category CITIES, the same with Towns he see each Town,

then when click the Town he see the each Type of Shops (Restaurants, Hotels, Bars etc..) and when he clik the type he is interesting lets say Hotels he then see the hotels that asigned to this City -> Towns -> Town-> Type.

How can i conect them together?

I follow this guide https://processwire.com/talk/topic/3579-tutorial-approaches-to-categorising-site-content/ so thats wy i come with this categories, i read a lot of simmilar posts in forum but there are to advance for me right now, so i am lost.

Thank you in advance!

You will get better answers but here are some examples...All these assume these code is being called in another page other than the one you are after...(pages..)

$city = $pages->get("template=city, title=Doha");//get one specific city

$cities = $pages->get("template=cities, title=Cities")->children("limit=10");//get 10 of all cities
$cities = $pages->get("/path/to/cities/page/")->children("limit=10");//get 10 of all cities

If you are able to follow, have a look at the code in the Blog Profile (maybe even the Skyscrapers profile)

It seems you are one the right track. I too struggled with structure and read the excellent guide written by kongondo you posted many times. My advise is to set up your site locally and start building it. Read the api and pay attention especially to the selectors. 

In my opinion Cities, Towns and Types will all be page reference fields. Create a template for you shops and add those three fields with to it. Then you can try testing out some selectors to query the information you are wanting. :)

thank you guys i think i do good with your help, this is what i do

  • Home
    • Shops
      • Gatos // HAS 4 PAGE FIELDS (example) city=City1, town=Town2, village=Village1 , type=Restaurants
      • Ammos// HAS 4 PAGE FIELDS= city, town, village, type
    • Cities
      • City1 // DONT HAVE PAGE FIELDS
      • City2 // DONT HAVE PAGE FIELDS
      • City3 // DONT HAVE PAGE FIELDS
    • Towns
      • Town1 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= city
      • Town2 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= city
      • Town3 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= city
    • Villages
      • Village1 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= town
      • Village2 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= town
      • Village3 // HAS 1 PAGE FIELDS= town
    • Types
      • Restaurants  // DONT HAVE PAGE FIELDS
      • Cafe Bars // DONT HAVE PAGE FIELDS

for every category i have a template:so page Cities have a template named cities now every children have a template named city 

the same i did for the rest of categories-childrens

the code i use to conect the pages is this:

THIS CODE IS FROM CITY PAGE (CHILD OF CITIES) AND WORKING FINE
<?php 
$city = $page->title; // I USED THIS VAR TO DISPLAY DYNAMIC THE NAME OF THE CITY FIELD BELLOW*
$vilages = $pages->find("template=town, city=$city"); // *HERE
foreach($vilages as $child){?>
<div class="col-md-4">
<div class="lbl">
<a href="<?php echo $child->url?>"><img src="<?php echo $child->imagecategory->url?>" alt="" class="fwimg"/><!--</a>-->
<div class="smallblacklabel"><?php echo $child->title?></div></a>
</div>
</div>
<?php } 
?>

THIS CODE IS FROM TOWN PAGE(CHILD OF TOWNS) AND WORKING FINE
<?php $town = $page->title; // I USED THIS VAR TO DISPLAY DYNAMIC THE NAME OF THE TOWN FIELD BELLOW* $towns = $pages->find("template=village, town=$town"); // *HERE foreach($towns as $child){?> <div class="col-md-4"> <div class="lbl"> <a href="<?php echo $child->url?>"><img src="<?php echo $child->imagecategory->url?>" alt="" class="fwimg"/><!--</a>--> <div class="smallblacklabel"><?php echo $child->title?></div></a> </div> </div> <?php }

      Please pardon me if this is a silly question. 
      I was wondering if anyone has designed a subscriber based system or any system where a user would create content and have rights to edit only that content. 

      Something such as a listing site, craigslist etc? 

      In my case I'd like to build some CRM management into my existing website. 

      I'm asking roughly what your approach would or might have been 🙂 I need a push. 
      Thank you.
