Category set up help
« on: April 07, 2010, 08:40:24 pm »

I'm hitting a roadblock trying to set up how I want photos to be structured on my page and was hoping for a bit of guidance. Basically this is what I'd like to do:

Past Events (parent category?)
*Concerts
   1) TOOL
   2) Nirvana
   
*Boxing
   1) 4.10.2009
   2) 01.22.2001

*MMA
  1) Strikeforce
  2) UFC

And so on. Basically a parent category with several main galleries which then has several different albums. I hope I have explained this sufficiently and I thank you for your help.

Post a link. Board rules / Forum policies: Post Links

Just create your parent 'Past Events' Category and then a category for each stared item then an album for your numbered items.

If that's not what you wanted to here, please explain your problem again.

Don't forget to post a link.

Thanks for the reply! I think part of the problem I may be having is that I cant figure out how to create a parent category. Where it says "Move into" the only choice I have available is *No Category* I have attached a screen grab o show you.

"No category" means "root category" or "root of the entire gallery"; it doesn't mean "move into nirvana" or "delete". As far as I can see your gallery already is set up exactly as you would like it to be set up (in terms of logical nesting of categories, sub-categories and albums) - see attached screenshot. Is your question related to the visual appearance on your index page?
