    Relationship feature is included for Listing Search module which appears just under the banner on the Home page. This option help to find & select needed makes and its models faster. In order to realize this relationship you need to follow this steps:
    • Set parent Category (Make) for Models:   listing categories  
    • After this it needs go to Manage Models and set correct parent Makes for each Models:   23

    Hi,
    Sure you can import makes and models via CSV file. Here is a related manual – https://stylemixthemes.com/manuals/motors/#import_makes_models

    Thank you for your suggestion, we are planning to add such kind of options in our future updates of the plugin.

    Hello OsiTech,

    The relationship works only with AJAX search function which is available in STM Classic filter. The Modern filter uses JavaScript for searching listings.

    I followed this instruction to the letter and cross-checked it but It’s not working for me. I think.

    In this example, VW, once selected under Make should only display Jetta under model. Right?

    What could I be missing? It seems so straightforward.

    Thanks.

    Hello OsiTech,
    The Make and Model relationship works in the Classified layout of the theme.

    Search Inventory option displays related categories automatically like STM Classic filter. If it doesn’t work in such way, you can create a ticket and we have a look at your settings.

    Which of the filters works with the boat theme. I have been trying to use the classic filter, and it has failed repeatedly. I had a ticket open, and I thought it was fixed. I closed the ticket, and now it doesn’t work. I’ll I have done is added more inventory. And it is broke again. Am I using the wrong filter for the boats theme?

    Yep, that works beautifully, now all we need to do is figure out how to bring in a few thousand makes and models without overloading the server. I tried importing the CSV file in bulk but it just throws back an error too many failures. Would I be better importing them into the SQL file instead?

    Hi Edward W,

    Have you tried to import your makes and models using STM Import Make & Model plugin?

    Regards
