    I do not know of a plugin. My guess is you could probably hire a developer.
    Perhaps if you mentioned what your budget was, and how much you were willing to spend for this, you might get some developers biting.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • I don't know how much you should pay for stuff like this lol.

    Nilla Blog is a category and you can have multiple discussions started in that category that use the blog style on posts.

    You can create multiple categories already . You can have a discussion under the Nilla Blog category and also start one in another Category as well using the same name ...

    So either we don't understand what you are asking, or you don't understand how the software works ?

  • Okay what I'm trying to do is be ably to set 2 Categories for each discussion.

    Since you only get one option for each Category to be selected when you start a discussion, the way it works now , you can't. But it may be possible to allow more selections in the category list drop down and have it post in two separate selected Categories.

    So what you need may be a way of selecting more categories to post to via one single discussion post ?

    You can also move the discussion to another category and still keep the original in the same category. Moving a discussion to a different category does not delete the original post .

  • All I'm trying to do lol is be ably to link discussion two Category1 and Category2 do you think this would be hard to make?

    Every time I do it I break the website lol could you try doing it?

    Okay my end goal is to make it so Recent Discussions are in the NillaBlog plugin style but last time I ask for help with doing that no one could help so my idea now is to have 2 Categories the first one will be the main Categories for the website home page and I will link it to each post I make and the other one will be a add on one for like Category 2.

    So the end goal is to be ably to link a post too two Categories one that will be the main home page and the other one will be the add one page so like I will have the main page call lasted news and if people don't like to see that or only read about one thing they can look at Categories2 that would be PS4 or PC etc.

    Update post!!

    It's really not that difficult.

    every line in the plugin

    that starts with the words

    • public function

    add this line below it

    if (!Gdn::Request()->GetValue('b')) return;

    except DO NOT add the line below these two functions.

    • public function SettingsController_NillaBlog_Create($Sender) {
    • public function Setup() {}

    if you clone the plugin, make sure only one of the plugins is enabled or it won't work.

    just change CategoriesController to DiscussionsController in the plugin.

    search and replace.


    and comment out lines like

    if ( !in_array($Sender->CategoryID, C("Plugins.NillaBlog.CategoryIDs")) )
    return;

    that will make recent discussions look like nilla blog.

    best I can do for you. good luck. probably best to hire someone. not me.

    • I'm going to force you to learn, even if you don't want to or think you can't.
    • if you don't cut and paste lines on this forum, I can't help you further with any more questions.
    • It is better to post snippets in the thread here, as far as I am concerned.

    cut and paste lines 75, 86, 118, 146,180 and 208

    in this discussion thread.

    then after you look at them.

    Tell me what controller it says on all those lines. you need to answer this question!

    CategoriesController refers to viewing list of discussions in a speciic category.
    DiscussionsController refers to Recent discussions page

    so your goal is to change CategoriesController to DiscussionsController

    then when you are finished with that

    post your lines 75, 875, 86, 118, 146,180 and 208 with the changes you make.
    in the next comment you make.


    2) starting after line 75 - post all the lines sequences that begin with "if" and end in "return"

    then comment them out.

    To do a single line comment type "//" and all text to the right will be ignored by PHP interpreter.


    3) then comment out this block of lines - you don't need them, you want normal sorting.

    * Sorts blog posts by creation time rather than last comment.
         * @param $Sender
         */
        public function DiscussionModel_BeforeGet_Handler($Sender) {
                $Wheres = $Sender->EventArguments["Wheres"];
                if (!array_key_exists("d.CategoryID", $Wheres) || !in_array($Wheres["d.CategoryID"], C("Plugins.NillaBlog.CategoryIDs")))
                        return;
    
                $Sender->EventArguments["SortField"] = "d.DateInserted";
                $Sender->EventArguments["SortDirection"] = "desc";
        }

    as r_j would say.

    a) I'm drunk
    b) you're drunk
    c) someone is drunk.
