Question Kunena Discuss: Can not make it work

This is my suggestion:



(I don't know the content categories of the categories where you do not want to enable discussions, so I just made up three random numbers).

If this does not work, please let us know.

No, it's not working because the denied categories have to be sub-categories, not top-level categories. I guess there's a simple question:


Can a top-level category transfer its settings on to its sub-categories?

Good question. I must admit that I haven't really sunk my teeth into J! 2.5 content sub-categories and I can't understand why there should be some kind of problem here. I will pass this matter along to my colleagues for their assessment. Please be patient; it may take a while for an answer.

Thinking about it, we're moving over from Jomcomment where you also select articles that can be discussed at a sub-category level (albeit from a category title selection list rather than article ID) not than the top-level category. So perhaps that's just the way it is in the crazy world of article commenting.

If this is the case, perhaps it's worth saying the hover/instructions something like "the category selected should contains articles and not sub-categories".

So it looks like a bit of work at set-up then an addition when a new sub-category is added. Have to say it'll be worth the effort - it's a great plugin and my colleagues were loving it (although probably not the one who gets given the mapping task).

Thanks for your time.

It might be better to discuss this "offline" - see my PM to you. Maybe it's just a question of terminology? :unsure:

UPDATE - Managed to map the individual sub-cagtegories easily enough with a bit of Excel help. So the mapping field contains a somewhat unwieldy

Thanks for the update. I still feel that there's an easier way but, if you're happy, maybe we should just leave this alone. On the other hand, did you receive my PM?

The short answer, however, is that J! 2.5 content "sub-categories" have cat-ids just like J! 2.5 content parent categories. As far as Kunena Discuss is concerned, it's a matter of mapping individual content cat-ids to Kunena cat-ids. You can't take a kind of "short cut", that is, you can't map a content category to a Kunena category and expect that the rule will apply to any/all content sub-categories. You have to map them all individually.

This also means that, if your content sub-categories grow in number, you will have to continually update the Kunena Discuss mapping rule.
