    Hi
    I've been trying to implement the work flow and notification for news items but have encountered a problem with the news category list.

    I've created some categories and it is possible to add a category to a news item, this category is then displayed correctly on the details table but when you click on the "edit this news" button the category is not selected in the drop down list. 

    Have I missed out a step?

    I followed the following knowledge base articles...

    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/kb/sitefinity-3-x/how-to-enable-approve-publish-permissions-in-modules-sitefinity-3-6.aspx
    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/kb/sitefinity-3-x/how-to-notify-roles-that-content-has-been-sent-for-approval.aspx

    Thanks
    Martin.

    Hi martin,

    Do you use a custom control to show your categories in "Edit" mode. By default the control that we use CategoriesField selects the category assigned to an item.
    When you say "Category" do you mean the ICategory object?

    All the best,

    Hi

    I'm using the NewsItemPreview.ascx control from the external templates folder. I'm assuming that this page is the one that appears under the view tab.

    I've not to my knowledge changed the edit tab at all.  The edit page seems to work for all the other information stored against the job except for the category drop down list.

    Thanks
    Martin.

    Hi martin,

    I am not able to replicate such issues. You can also give a try on demo.sitefinity.com. If you manage to replicate the issue there, please send the exact steps you use.

    Hi
    I'm unable to try on demo.sitefinity.com as I'm only using version 3.7.

    I've noticed that this error does not occur on any new news items that I have created since I implemented the work flow functionality.

    I'll just have to recreate my news articles, there are not many at the moment as we are still in the evaluation stage so it's not the end of the world.

    Thanks
    Martin.
