Category posting is now in place!
« on: January 21, 2012, 08:01:41 PM »
Hi guys,

If you updated all of the blogs in your account to at least Editor level (65% have so far), then you can now choose which category you want your posts to go into.

The category you select must be appropriate for the post. If it isn't, your post will be declined by the reviewers indicating that the category does not match the post.

The categories for other people's posts will be created on your blogs on an as-needed basis. So they won't all just suddenly appear -- just the ones that are in use by the posts.

As always, let me know what you think!

Jon

One thing to note: when your post goes to a blog that has not yet been prepared to accept categories, it will go into the default selected category as before.

More of the blogs are becoming category-ready every day, so hopefully soon your post will almost always go to a categorized blog.

This is great! Any chance we could add bodybuilding (or weight lifting, or build muscle) into the categories somewhere under sports or health?

Done. There's a Body Building category under Health now.

You don't change it in your 1WayLinks account. You change it in your WordPress blog Admin interface:

Users > Role (dropdown)

Select "Editor", then Save

Yep!

I'm trying to add a new post and get an error that I have not chosen a category. I do not find that option on the new post submission page. How do I do it?

The category list is below the Body box of the New Post page.

Can we get a subcategory called "Hearing" in the Heath one?

Is this running yet on sites? I see that you can select the category when posting new articles, but none of my 50 blogs have any categories yet?

It would be nice if we could specify which type of articles to post on specific sites? Even if it's just top level category. Google would probably love it too.
