Archived ⇒ Associated Topic


When writing an article (news), you get to select a topic right, but also an "associated topic". I like that idea because sometimes there are some other topics you would want the article to show up under as well as it's main one...however, I'm not sure if I have misunderstood the purpose of associated topics, because when i select an article as beine associated to another topic, it doesn't show up for that topic. Only its main topic.

Now I am very confused...please help!

If I understood associated topic right, it means that when you open and read a news article that has associated topics you get a block with other news from the associated topics to the right (or where your theme has this block appear).

So when you go into a news topic you only get the articles directly under that topic, but if you click on an article you will get other news from topics that you have associated that article with in above mentioned block.

Ah, ok, i understand now. Shame that though, because if you only have a short article, i.e. there is no ead more"link, the feature becomes obsolete Sad

Maybe what would be an idea is something like "keywords" like in a blog. So you can f.ex add keywords "computers" and "laptops" to an article, so that you get this article on the list if you enter the topic "Computers" and on the topic "Laptops".

Somthing for the "Requests" forum maybe...
