    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering if it is possible to add a description to the categories. For example when I add a new category in the blogs I would like to have 'Description' entered aswell and retrieve it later in the blog control.

    I've added metadata to 'modules' before, however cannot see how I might do this with Categories without replacing the whole backend view for categories.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Jodie

    Hello Jodie,

    Metakeys description is not supported. You need to create a custom data layer that will persist the value of your description and then map it to a key. You can use Dictionary and persist and get the data for each KeyValuePair. You will need to replace the backend CategoriesView with a custom one, because this is a new implementation.

    Sincerely yours,
