The instructions are in the readme file. They are pretty basic but following them should help you get the directory up and running. Beyond that please feel free to ask if you need help with anything specific. There’s information on the site as well, admittedly it’s all scattered about right now so your best course of action is to post to the forum for any specific problem you need help with.
I can’t for the life of me find out how to add categories specific for the directory.
The read me file says : “Manage Options allows you to setup such options as the category IDs that need to be reserved for the plugin’s use”
So I added a category under “manage options” using “Directory Category IDs”
But after that I’m stuck…I thought I would have to make a post and assign it the category that I assigned through the id but it doesn’t work. :o(
It is the only thing I find unclear in the read me file…otherwise it is all easy to understand.
So how do I add a category and assign it to the directory and stop it from showing up on the homepage as a post.
thank you for this plugin…much appreciated!
Nigel, you create your directory categories as if they are normal wordpress categories, so you go to the Dashboard->Post->Categories and add the categories as you normally would. The only difference is that once you have created the categories you have to tell the plugin which categories are the directory categories. You do that by putting the category IDs (the numerical IDs not the names) into the field that calls for it under your Configure Options tab for the plugin.
