Multicategories DJ-Classifieds App

Multicategories DJ-Classifieds App

With Multi categories App for DJ-Classifieds, it's possible to submit one advert to more than one category.

The administrator can decide the maximum number of categories the advert can be submitted to.

In this tutorial, I'll explain how the Multi 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 Multi categories 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 number of additional categories users will be able to add adverts to.

What's next?

All is set and now when users are submitting the adverts they'll see a new button under categories select list. Clicking it will reveal a new select list with categories selection.

When a 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 the limit set in the plugins (App) options.

Once the user selects additional categories the respective custom fields will appear below so they can be filled.

Once the advert is published it's now being visible in all selected categories. The categories are listed in the Advert details section of the advert's page.

What about the administrator?

Of course, the site administrator can assign the adverts to more categories from the backend. 

To do it:

  1. Go to DJ-Classifieds -> Items
  2. Edit (open) the item (advert) you want to edit
  3. go to the Category and custom fields tab and select more categories from the multi-select list

Once you select additional categories the respective custom fields will appear below so you can fill them too. Learn more about custom fields in DJ-Classifieds.
