The plugin handles city locations automatically. At your option, within either the rental search widget or the rental search bar, a "Location" field can be utilized which will filter properties by city.

However a city filter is not real helpful if all of your properties are in the same city. In that instance, it might be more helpful to have a regional filter like Oceanfront, Oceanview, Intracoastal, etc.. or Downtown, Uptown, Arts District, etc..

To accommodate those situation a property can be assigned to a "category" within Lodgix. On WordPress unique pages are created which highlight only the inventory assigned to that category.

Step #1: Open the Category Manager within Lodgix

Step #2: Define the Categories

The order can be changed using the drag and drop interface.

Subcategories

The arrow points to the subcategories button. For example, Paris has a bunch of areas including left bank, right bank, etc..

Step #3: Assign each Category to a Property

There are two ways to assign categories / subcategories to properties.

Within the Properties > List All Properties interface the category - subcategory can be selected. This is the easiest method as the category can be changed across many properties very quickly.

Or within the property setup itself:

Refresh the WordPress Site

Once the categories have been defined and assigned to properties, it is time to refresh the pages within the Lodgix WordPress plug-in. Once this step is complete, the "category pages" will be generated and show up within WordPress.

Add the Property Categories to a WordPress Menu

Within WordPress, navigate to Appearance > Menus

  1. Select the Property Category that you want to add and click the "Add to Menu" button

  2. Position the Category using the drag and drop interface

  3. Save
