    [​IMG] I'm working on a new forum and has 331 Resorts and 31 Categories of locations. Wanting to know the best way to do this.

    Trying to figure out the best way to display these without an user needing to scroll for miles down the page. :)

    Hopefully this makes some sense.

    Thanks!

    Might be best to create a forum for each primary geographical region these resorts are located in, instead of a forum for each particular resort.

    Condense it down and make use of thread prefixes which can be sorted.

    You will notice trends with one resort getting bigger make it a dedicated section on its own when that happens.

    Thanks to everyone for the replies! I am not 100% sure how this would work. I did Google using "thread prefixes" and did not grasp how they would work. I did read the description on https://xenforo.com/help/thread-prefixes/ the Xenforo site too, but... I know I need to condense the site, but cannot figure out how to do that.

    Have you considered to use Showcase for resorts?

    I did take at look at this add-on and it seems to work really well, with excellent reviews. Not sure if it would help me condense my list of 331 resorts though.

    I recommend you just play around with them in the admin a bit. It's not difficult at all once you get the hang of it. You create a prefix and assign it to the forums/nodes you want it to be used on, then users can assign that prefix in the thread title field when creating a thread. If you want only certain users to be able to use certain prefixes, you can do that too. Prefixes are under the Applications tab in the admin.

    And you might want to pick up this handy little addon too.
