    Category Hierarchy Issues

    I have some issues with the Classipress Category Hierarchy structure. I'm not sure whether this is simply because Classipress hasn't been developed further than the sub-category level or whether the CP 3.1.7 update has had some affect on the structure.

    Up until this point, I haven't had the need to use sub-sub categories and I'm now using a test site here: http://buynewhouseandland.net.au/ before I implement any changes on my "live" site.....as I do with all changes.

    For the purpose of demonstrating my concerns, I have opened up all of the Category settings (Show all, 3 & 4 columns,etc) and sorted by name.

    Using the "NORTHERN" category as the example, the correct hierarchy should be as follows:

    NORTHERN (Main cat) URL..../northern
    Mernda (Sub Cat) URL…./northern/mernda
    Land Only (Sub-sub Cat) URL..../northern/mernda/land-only
    More Land (Sub-sub-sub Cat) URL..../northern/mernda/land-only/more-land
    As you can see, the Category structure is incorrectly shown as follows:

    NORTHERN
    Land Only
    Mernda
    More Land
    Apart from the obvious lack of indentation for the sub-sub & sub-sub-sub categories, these ‘lower’ sub categories are not in their correct order/hierarchy. I’ve tried to sort by ID as well as name but to no avail.

    Even more bizarre is the url structure for the sub-sub category as follows:

    URL..../northern/mernda/land-only-mernda

    The sub-category name (mernda) has mysteriously been added back to the end of the sub-sub category name (land-only)?!

    Firstly, could you please clarify exactly what the Classipress 3.1.7 Category hierarchy is supposed look like in its standard form (fully expanded to a sub-sub category basis)? The Appthemes Demo only goes as far as the sub-category level. How about adding a sub-sub category & a further sub-sub-sub category to the Demo and let's see for ourselves?

    Secondly, and of even greater concern, is that the URL structure for most of the sub-sub categories on my test site is incorrect...it is automatically adding the sub-category name to the end of the sub-sub category name as soon as I create the category...and I can't edit it in the admin panel (it won't save)?! Could this be a bug?
