    The Location Finder block provides search, filters, a map, and a listing your YMCA locations.

    Amenities filters

    A screenshot of the Location Finder’s “filter by amenities” section.

    Location Finder also now supports hierarchical amenities. That means you can arrange your list of amenities into categories instead of a simple alphabetical list.

    The Amenities taxonomy is managed at Administration > Structure > Taxonomy > Amenities. See Taxonomy, Vocabularies, and Terms for more info on managing Vocabularies.

    Single-level amenities

    If you leave the Amenities terms in a flat list on their configuration page, the Location Finder filters will display according to their configured weights. Drag terms up or down in the list to rearrange them in the filters.

    Hierarchical (parent/child) amenities

    Y’s with many amenities may choose to group them in categories. Once any Amenities term is nested, the Location Finder filters switch to a hierarchical display.

    To nest terms:

    • Go to the Amenities administration page at Administration > Structure > Taxonomy > Amenities.
    • Add term to create new parent terms if necessary.
    • Use the drag handle [✥] to arrange terms into nested groups.


    • Any terms more than two levels deep will be ignored. (That is, parents and children will be displayed, grandchildren will not.)
    • When nesting is enabled, any amenities that are not grouped will be hidden from the filter list.
