any way to link a product profile to two sections?

post #1 of 4

For example, the Natures Baby Body & Hair Wash

 

That has two sections it equally belongs in, but is only in one, and the idea of having two seperate pages for it with seperate reviews doesn't seem to jive, since it is only one product with similar uses. the same goes for stuff like baking soda and tea tree oil, ect... that could fit into so many different sections because of the various uses.

Hey Kay!

 

The original (and still current) thinking with the product profile tabs was that we would at some point allow them to be named and organized by individual users.

 

For example, if we were to start a photography huddle, the point would be that users could name one tab "Primary Camera" and put the camera, lenses, bag, etc. all under that tab. Then they could also have a "Point and Shoot" tab to put another camera and its related accessories there. The logic is that it would be maximally helpful to not only know that User XYZ has these cameras and those lenses, but to know which products are actually used together so that a new user can look at a camera's page and know which accessories are best for it. That's the vision anyway...

 

Because there are so many different types of green products that we cover and they're not necessarily complimentary to one another in this same way, we just created default tabs and assigned each product type to a tab.

 

Anyway, sorry if that's too long-winded, but please let me know if it isn't clear. I guess my best suggestion would be for you to just call out multiple uses for the product in your review?

OHHHHH, as soon as I posted my response, I was notified by my fellow Huddlers that I didn't answer the question that was asked, haha.

 

I think what you meant was can a product exist in two product categories? Hmm, unfortunately not - although our rigid taxonomy can be a bit limiting sometimes, we thought long and hard about the trade-offs of allowing a product to live in two different areas of the taxonomy and ultimately decided against it.

 

In the meantime, Stins opened up the Baby Bathing category (eliminated the sub-categories) to make it a bit more accommodating hopefully. Thanks Kay!
