Documents – types and categories
27 Sep 2015 at 14:15 #2011
Sorry to ask such a newbie question…
We’ve done several installs to test and explore what Govintranet does. We’ve even got a multi-site install running and can clone a sub-site that works nicely.
It’s really ace. But –
I can’t work out how to assign a category to a document. I only get to choose document ‘type’ but the how-do-I shows type and category. And the Govintranet short codes are demonstrated as having both as well – and I can make a short code display a document by removing the ‘cat=””‘ bit and leaving just ‘type=2test”. I’ve tried through the media library and attaching a document from ‘attach’ on a page.
When I get the categories tag to appear (by setting up a task and giving it a category) it behaves OK and the linked task is found fine.
I have several categories set up and I can assign a one of these categories to a task quite happily. I’ve also tried Chrome, Chromium, Firefox and a couple of flavours of IE.
Oh – and I’ve upgraded to the latest version from the older version we were using. In case that solved it – it didn’t, unfortunately.
I’m certain I’m missing something embarrassingly obvious…

Ooops. Read the manual, eh.
To help others – in case anyone else makes the same mistakes… (they are in the forums but back a bit).
Firstly, I needed to install another module – I used https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-media-library-categories/ and then the categories appeared.
The I needed to give my documents page documents-finder as a slug.
Now it all works.

Glad you got the document finder working.
I’d love to know more about your multi-site setup. I’ve not had the chance to try this myself yet.
Are you able to share more?
