“Custom Admin-page” video
An admin cannot create subcategory before creating parrent category or subcategory.
A category page or subcategory subpage is going to be automatically created and attached to its parent page in the process of category or subcategory registration. This is important for getting the correct URL structure.
A category or subcategory image is going to be automatically tagged with the corresponding tag name. That way we can easily find category and subcategory header images in the media library.
A category/subcategory page status indicator is tracking related page or subpage status so you can easily check pages and detect what is wrong with the page. Is it may be saved as a draft, protected with a password, moved to trash, or deleted.
If a page is deleted, as we have previously explained then a recreate page button will appear. An admin will just click on it to recreate the corresponding category/subcategory page. The recreated page will be attached as a subpage if necessary.
Each subcategory has the option for selecting the parent category or subcategory which can be edited later. That way an admin can easily move a subcategory from one category to another with the all attached groups and level 2 subcategories.

“Newsfeed Home-page” video
The category menu is dynamically populated with main categories that are previously created in the custom admin page.
The slider is loading the latest posts from the groups attached to all categories on request. If a visitor clicks on a slide, a popup tab with the post will appear as we have seen in the video.
The latest group posts are not going to be displayed on the newsfeed page if group status is hidden or private. Group has to be public.
The content type is automatically detected and marked by one of four icons type which are VIDEO, IMAGE, LINK, USER-MENTION, and TEXT ONLY.
A user can reorganize the order of category sections appearance. His custom reorganization will be saved for the next time.
We had to upgrade the WordPress database and some procedures so we can retrieve the latest posts very fast. Also, we had to take care not to slow down the process of publishing group posts. In the end, we did a successful database stress test with a million data in the table.
Shared login session
If a user has signed in to his account on the social network then he doesn’t have to sign in again when visiting the shop. We have coded a custom solution for this functionality.
To achieve a newsfeed page fast loading, we have custom coded functionality where the category newsfeeds located outside of the current screen view are additionally loaded on a mouse scroll event.
