post to multiple categories

Hi all,

I did a search for this but couldn't find what I needed. I want to sort items via categories, in my case by state. I can do this fine with the news categories addon. However, often I want to be able to place a piece of news in more than one category. I can't do this with the categories addon as it is a dropdown selection.

Can I make a custom newsfield with checkboxes for each state and then use viewnews to somehow link to each state?

Thanks,
Nick

You can use the CustomFields Addon to create a drop-down box with the state names you need. You can then use the Filter-by-Field addon to select the ones you want to include into each profile.

See this thread for more discussion.
