Hi, first post here, and a new b2e user.
I plan to host quite a few blogs and I really miss a function to group blogs into categories, to have them listed in an orderly fashion. For example, I'd like a category called "Culture" in which I sort blogs "Hollywood Movies", "French authors" etc, and another category called "Philosophy" with blogs like "Kant and Descartes", "Meaning of life" etc. You get the picture.
I figured this could be done by adding a table called evo_blogcategories, containing the fields cat_ID, cat_name and cat_description, which will contain my blog categories.
I also added a field in evo_blogs called blog_category, referring to cat_ID in evo_blogcategories.
What I would need some help with is to write a plugin (modifying _categories_plugin.php?) which will display my blogs something like this:
[url=http://www.domain.com/stub]Kant and Descartes[/url]
[url=http://www.domain.com/stub]Meaning of life[/url]
I'm not looking for any fancy interface in the backend, but will rather manage these entries directly in phpMyAdmin. Is this a totally stupid way to achieve what I need, or am I on the right track?
Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I know _some_ php, but the structure of b2e is unknown so I figured I'd ask for help here.
Thanks in advance.
