Auto Category Generated Pages

Auto generated category and sub-category pages would take this package to the next level. These pages can obviously be made with a little bit of work, but this feature would be really nice.

Thanks for the suggestion. Subcategories are on our future feature wish list for uDirectory... but I can't give you any time estimate on when that feature will be getting in there. Since adding the "$max_listings_per_page" setting in question #16 of the uDirectory Deluxe configuration - which helps to separate categories with large numbers of listings into addition "NEXT" pages - the number of requests for subcategories has been low.

As for the additional organization that subcategories would offer, in the mean time, perhaps you can name your categories in such a way to simulate "subcategories". For example, if you were using uDirectory to list businesses in various states, perhaps you could name your categories something like:

Florida - Cocoa
Florida - Cocoa Beach
Florida - Melbourne
Florida - Orlando
Florida - Rockledge
Florida - Titusville
Georgia - Atlanta
Georgia - Athens
Georgia - Augusta
and so on...

Which results in an effect similar to subcategories. (since the categories would be listed like that in the category drop-down list).
