Add-On Type(s)



The VL Category Groups plugin allows you to retrieve category groups and their categories from a certain channel or list of category groups.


Will return all category groups assigned to the channel.

Will return those specific category groups.

Defaults to yes, but if you only want to return the category groups, you can set it to “no” to reduce queries.

Example Usage

Category Structure:

Colorado (group)

  • Boulder
  • Denver
  • Springfield

North Carolina (group)

  • Chapel Hill
  • Durham
  • Raleigh

Virginia (group)

  • Alexandria
  • Arlington
  • Falls Church

Now, let’s say that you want to return a list of the states and cities:

	{if count == "1"}
			{if category_count == "1"}
				<a href="/locations/city/{category_url_title}">{category_name}</a>
			{if category_count == total_categories}
	{if count == total_results}
