>> news categories and subcategories
>> news module should be tool module type
hmmm, I prefer to have an extended settings page on each news module page but i do think it is an interesting idea
>> yeah, I hate the /posts/ thing too but honestly I never thought of changing that, let's look in to that soon
Meanwhile I managed to add a tags option, I copied the groups files en db-tables and worked my way through the files to get the drag n drop positioning stuff and the paginator working. my plan is to add an option where in each post a list of all tags is shown and you can check every suitable tag.
(did a similair addition to bakery last year)
With the tags I see more than one extra feature:
- you can display specifics easily: for instance you have a newspage for a local newspaper covering news in x-amount cities -> cities as tags -> tag the appropriate cities -> [TAGS] will display all checked tags.
- a filter option: put the tags in a dropdown and select the needed tag -> only postst with the selected tag will remain
- show links to news items with matching tags underneath the item detail page
etc etc ...
(this might even be a better solution that categories and subcategories ....)
