    Hi Brian, thanks for the article. Is it possible to create sub-categories for submissions and pages with any of these themes?

    The sort of functionality I need is for there to be different categories for parts of the world, then sub-categories for countries and sub-sub-categories for cities within that country. Ie I need content to be able to be filtered, submitted and displayed at multiple levels.

    I hope that makes sense and if so your theme is exactly what I’m looking for.

    Thanks in advance.
