Note: Categories are only offered to visitors to your course site if you have at least two published courses. You can still set up categories in advance of having two published courses.


For schools with more than a few courses, categories allow you to create subsections on your school "browse courses" page for your classes to make it easier to find similar classes.


Adding Categories


In your Admin Dashboard, select Categories.



Under 'Create a new category', enter a name for the new category. Selecting the URL field to edit it will add a default URL to that field automatically. You can change this URL by removing it and entering your own.



Your new category will be added below 'Your Categories'.


Adding Courses to a Category


You can add multiple courses to categories, which will make them easier to find for users looking for specific kind of course on your site. Courses can appear in multiple categories too!


Under 'Your Categories' select Edit beside a category.



Under 'Manage courses or bundles in this category' use the drop down menu to select a course to add to this category, then select Add.



Removing a Course From a Category


You can remove a course from a category by selecting the DeleteĀ button (trashcan icon).



That's it, you're done! You can view your categories on your school by visiting: http://YourSite.thinkific.com/collections/


In order to access your categories page you will need to have 2 or more courses published. With only one class published, visitors to your school will be taken straight to your course.
