  • [Blog] Admin Move Blog Category

    I am sure I am just missing a setting or something, but as an admin I don't see where I can move a blog that has already been posted by a user, even when I "Go Advanced" in edit mode. Any help would be appreciated.

      Say that I have a blog that is currently "Uncategorized", which was posted by a user, and I want to put it in "Category A" that I have setup in the admincp. "Global categories" is not in the additional options options when editing a blog created by a user, but it is when I edit one of my own. Thanks.

        No response? Is it still unclear what I am trying to do? I am trying to categorize blogs posted by users that are currently "Uncategorized." Any response would be appreciated.

        Thanks.

          I am still not clear.

          To troubleshoot this, first reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

          Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

          [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

          Next, disable all products (except vB Blog and vB CMS if you are running the Suite.)

          Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Disable

          Then manually uncheck all plugins that are not for 'vBulletin Blog' and vBulletin CMS' here:

          Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Plugin Manager

          You must do BOTH of those steps in order to disable all non vBulletin Modifications.

          Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

          Do you have the same problem?

            I understand exactly what summytinc is saying as I have the very same problem/question. Here is my explanation:

            Scenario 1 (no problem). A blog is posted and assigned a category by the poster. If I Edit Blog Entry, and Go Advanced, the first thing I see beneath Additional Options is Blog Categories. From there I can edit the categories assigned to that entry.

            Scenario 2 (problem). A blog is posted but not assigned a category by the poster. It's listed as Uncategorized. If I Edit Blog Entry, and Go Advanced (as before), the Blog Categories section is missing. I cannot assign a category to that entry.

            Any help gratefully received.

            Regards
            Paul

                after trying the proposed solutions I finally found the answer on my own. Under Usergroup Manager, Blog General Permissions, I made "Can View Admin Categories" and "Can Post to Admin Categories" both yes. This solved my issues with blog cats.

                  The issue for me was understanding the concept of Global and Local Categories. No global categories were set up on the site and the user in scenario 2 hadn't created any local categories.

                  Thanks.
