    8484The Locales field is exactly analogous to the Categories field - the only difference lies in the meaning. Apart from that, the two operate in exactly the same manner. By entering a locale name into the Locales field, you indicate that the page you're viewing is located in that locale. Simple. Any number of locales may be put into the field, as locales tend to overlap, meaning that a place may well be in several places at once. For an example, we're going to use Tottenham Court Road in London. Tottenham Court Road exists simultaneously in the locales West End, Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia. Other things may exist in one, two or also all three of those locales. Or none at all (in the case of pages that are not about places).

    8888It can also be useful to create a hierarchy of locales. For example, in London, Locale Bloomsbury is part of Locale Central London. Other locales may be in Locale West London, Locale East London, and so on. These meta-locales are themselves in Category Locales, as are all locale pages. So by doing this, you can "dig down" from the most general to the most specific level.
