Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_unlimited_categories - Unltd. Article Categories

OK I have finally had a chance to istall this and at the risk of sounding incredibly dull…. how am I supposed to assign cats to the actual article? I have the select box visible with all of the cats. Now what? Am I supposed to be using custom fields for my cat selections? And copy/paste to use them? It seems as if I am missing something fundamental here.

Thanks!
Sorry if I’m slow on this, but it seems as if I’m missing some instructions :)

I think you just ctrl-click multiples of the categories that appear in the new selection box on the write screen.

I’ve only just started to play with this, but it looks excellent…

Thats what I inferred, but the crtl clicking works for selection, however I do not see where it is actually “tagging” anything. If you come back to the article later there is no indication that any cat has actually been assigned.

I’m guessing at this point that like ran_tags I need a custom field for the cat tags? I copy/paste my cats into the custom field….do I need only 1 custom field or one for each cat?

I haven’t played further with it Soulship, but I do know that custom fields are not required, because the plugin creates and uses it’s own table structure – see the help section of the plugin.

I’m sure Rob (or someone) will chime in with the answer…

Soulship: The category choice should be “selected/highlighted” in the list. If you’ve transferred articles, you might have to “reselect” the category.

For me the selection is all: no need to indicate what categories are selected in other places than the select box. It is the input and output interface at the same time. I admit that at first I was having doubts too, but that is. If you select with ctrl + click multiple categories, when you come back to the article, the categories you’ve choosen should be still selected with a different colour. If not, well, it’s not working :). But this shouldn’t be the case.

To output in article/list pages, you have to use one of the tags the plugin introduce.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_unlimited_categories - Unltd. Article Categories

OK I needed to uninstall and reinstall?? For some reason the tables did not seem to get installed the first time. I don’t know what happened maybe a txd thing who knows at any rate it is working now and I did infer correctly as Zanza and Niel have pointed out [crtl] click is the way to go. Once the tables are actually in place it does correctly store the information.

Thanks folks off to bomb another thread now ;)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_unlimited_categories - Unltd. Article Categories

Call me a numb-skull, but where articles categories listed. I’m using this so that I can assign more than one category for a user’s articles, but a when a user views the “Articles” tab, they cannot browse by Category, because it still says Cat 1 and Cat 2, and nothing is filled in. Am I mis-using this plugin?

Also, when I use the txp:article_custom category=”“ I get nothing returned. Can I only use the rss tags to list these multiple categories?
