Catagories ??

Postby Kayto » Tue Jul 09, 2002 7:04 pm

Catagories - What do they really do ?

I want to be able to post news on our site with different catagories and have each catagorie use a different News Style.

At the moment its setup with the default news style displaying a logo in the news item when someone posts.

I want to have different news styles for different types of news so that it displays a different Icon with each catagory.

Can anyone help here ?

A news style is associated with a Profile. Each Profile can contain one or more categories. Each category can be posted to by a selected number of people.

Basically you need to create a profile for each "category item" (as reviews, comments, newsofthe day, etc) you wish to post on your site. And then associate the appropriate Coranto categories to this profile, and select the wished styles.
Coranto addons:
* GuestPost, one click guestposting
* MoveIt!, Advanced Backup and site transfer
* PartialRebuild, CPU-friendly enhancement of FullBuild
* URLColumn, URLs for multiple Categories/Profiles
* Tickit!, Javascript News Tickers/Faders for Coranto!
* AddonEnabler, enables or disables single, multiple or all addons in one go
* SubmitMultiple, post consecutive news in an automatic loop!
* RSSAdvanced, RelatedNews ....

I want the Catagories on the Same Page

Here is the site they will go on:
http://www.InsideGamers.net

I want them to look like this:

*LOGO* News Title - Date - Posted By
News Item . . . . . .


The *LOGO* will be replaced with the logo for the catagory.
So if it's an XBox news Item it will have the XBox logo
if it's a GameCube news Item it will have the GameCube logo

They will all be on that main page.
