Content Widget - Parent Category

    We created a parent category and subcategories, how do I create a content list widget to show all the articles with the parent category?

    Hi Chris,

    Just to confirm that you are talking of content list widget, Right?

    Thanks,
    Raghav

    Yes, content list widget.  From image below, People is the parent category with Fred Factor and New Hire as subcategories.  We have articles loaded with categories of People / New Hire and People / Fred Factor, but when you just select People from the category in the widget, nothing shows

    Hey Chris,

    The content list widget can only filter for one category. When you select a parent category, only content with the parent category will display. Content with child categories will not display in the content list widget.

    This is a defect.

  • cjbrooks

    So I'm confused to the purpose of parent/child categories if they are essentially just separate categories

  • cjbrooks

    Is there any plan to correct this?

  • gskamau

    Hey Chris,

    I am checking with our development team.

    Hi Chris and Maxwell,

    We have added the ability to include all the content present under a parent category on content list widget.

    Here is one example on how it will work:

    In the screenshot below, the "Sensex" category is the child category of "News" category (/admin/articles/manage-article-categories):

    We created 1 article under "News" category and 2 under "Sensex" category:

    The last two are under "Sensex" category (which is the child pf "News" category)

    In the page builder page we added a content list widget with category "News" as one of the filter for that content list widget:

    On going to view detail of page builder page we can see that all the articles which belong to "News" category along with those articles which have parent category as "News"  ("Sensex" category one) will come in the results.

    Earlier, before this integration only those articles were coming in the content list widget which belong to "News" category only and not the ones which belong to "Sensex" one which was the child category of "News" category.

    We will apply this fix on your site in the next update very soon. 

    Thanks,
    Raghav
