Hi, just found you today. Purchased the button free as well! thank you.

I'm trying to go through all the videos but can not seem to find a video on how to create a front end view for a custom area.

I have managed to create an app Menus/Base and inside base i duplicated a few article fields.

I now have my form and my list based on the front end article manager video.

Now i only want the category ( Food and all its sub categories to be in the drop down filter )

When i go to my food menu manager page i can see only the food menu items so thats great - bu tin the category drop down filter i can still see all the other joomla categories as well.How do i not show any of them?

I only want to show the Food category and any of its sub categories in the filter

for this you need to use select dynamic field and limit options in the query, #__categories table has parent_id field so you can do query like this, replace number 5 with the id of your food cateogory

SELECT id as value, title as text from #__categories WHERE parent_id = 5 OR id = 5
