    Because I several blog module's setup, I would like to only grab the categories for that specific blog.

    Through the api I can see you can search categories by owner, however the database has null values in for the owner column? Is this owner only settable by the API?

    I also notice there's a parentID column in the categories table. What significance does that have?

    Thanks

    -Matt

    Hello Matt,

    There is no FilterExpression property on Categories List that will allow you to filter the blogs. This functionality will be implemented in Sitefinity 3.6. We sent a reply to the other thread opened by you.

    There is a work around using the API, but it is complicated. The good news is that the 3.6 will be released in a month or two. Also, we do not encourage working with the database, because we use ORM and there are some dependencies that might be tricky to handle.

    Kind regards,

    Sorry about the double post. When you click on the Post in Forum link on the main support page it posts in some community forum, which I couldn't find later by going into the main forum.

    Glad to see it's coming for 3.6. I'm testing out Sitefinity for my company and it seems to be a good fit.

    Another wish would be to have parent/child categories!
