Multiple categories for a single post

Hello Friends, Great forum with great community ecosystem. I am trying to setup Vanilla forum for a jobs discussion board. But do I have an option to assign mupltiple categories to a single post. I am really looking for my deployment so please suggest me some hacks or tips that can make my requirement achievable. Regards Rajesh Segu

    I've actually been looking for the same sort of feature. I think it's kind of silly to assume that a discussion should be allowed to only be in one category. One of the most constrictive things about conventional BB software is that it follows that strict hierarchical scheme. I think that an add-on that allowed users to select multiple categories (whether by multi-selection boxes or check boxes/radio buttons or any other method) would be a great benefit to making vanilla stand out from the crowd. If you have a sticky that you want to be at the top of EVERY category, you could do it easily. If you had a discussion that really could be in two or three categories, you wouldn't have to worry that someone who doesn't check one of those categories might miss it. So, anyways, I haven't found anything here on the forums so I'm starting work on it myself. I'm not that great of a PHP coder though so it might be a while.

    Hmmm, one thing I love about Vanilla is that there is no possibility of the dreaded cross-post.
    I'd never turn on such a feature.

    Course you could use tags otherwise...
