Creating hierarchal taxonomies

Hi there, am currently evaluating Bubble as a possible frontend for my product. I have a unique use case and need to allow users to drill down through a hierarchal taxonomy/category structure.

Each click on a taxonomy will taken the user to the next level, if it exists. Child taxonomies only appear when the parent has been clicked. E.g.

Page one

  • Fruit (user clicks to go to page 2)
  • Vegetables
  • Meat

Page two

  • Apples (user clicks to go to page 3)
  • Bananas
  • grapes
  • etc

Page three

  • Granny smith
  • Red Delicious
  • Pink Lady
  • etc.

I know this might not seem the most ideal way to present data, but this is. a unique use case and I need to find an easy method to do this. This type of hierarchal taxonomy is out-of-the-box with Wordpress but i don’t want to go there.

I have tried using a data type with a relative field back to itself as the parent field but this is not ideal.

Any thoughts?
Thx in advance

Hello @renee welcome to the community!

Entry
Title (text)
Parent (entry)
Other fields as needed …

Level 1 - The parent of any L1 entry in the tree is the root of the tree. So … no parent for these
Level 2 - The parent of any L2 entry is any level 1 entry
Level 3 - The parent of any L3 entry is any level 2 entry
… to infinity and beyond …

Hope this helps! :smiley:
