Filters and categories General behavior

1. One filter / Category
Adding one filter will create a menu with the content of this category only: the content of the list will include only content that falls into this precise category. 

2. More than one filter / Category
If you add more than one filter, the menu will be filtered with all of these categories.

3. Several pages filtered by categories
To create direct access to your content filters, you must create only sections.
To do so, add as many sections as needed, and create only one filter (the filter of your source content
category, you wish to display on your app section).

Design of your Filters / Categories

There is 3 different presentation modes to access the filters: 
Dropdown (adds a drop down list just below the Navigation Bar displaying the page filters if you click on it)
- Circle Band (adds a scrollable band just below the Navigation Bar containing the page filters)
- Pager (adds a "page" icon in the Navigation bar. One page filter = one page. You need to select another page to see another filter).
