With Mutlicategories App for DJ-Classifieds it's possible to submit one advert to more than one category.
Administrator can decide the maximum number of categories the advert can be submitted to.
In this tutorial I'll explain how the Mutli categories App works, how to set it and what you can do with it.
How it works and how to set it up?
The logic behind this App is really simple. Once the Multicategories App is enabled users are able to select more than one category for each item (advert).
After installation of the plugin (App) you just need to enable it and set the amount of additional categories users will be able to ad adverts to.
All is set and now when users are submitting the adverts they'll see new button under categories select list. Clicking it will reveal new select list with categories selection.
When user clicks the button and selects another category the new (additional) set of custom fields is being displayed. This way user is able to add as many categories as limit set in the plugins (App) options.
Once the advert is published it's now being visible in all selected categories. The categories are listed in Advert details section of the advert's page.
What about administrator?
Of course site administrator can assign the adverts to more categories from backend.
To do it:
- Go to DJ-Classifieds -> Items
- Edit (open) the item (advert) you want to edit
- go to Category and custom fields tab and select more categories from the multiselect list
