hello to all!
I successfully modified the P2 Theme (working off of the already modified P2 Theme over at http://www.omarvelous.com/)
The problem with omarvelous's theme was it was not posting the category you selected in the dropdown box.... well guess what? it is 3:14 AM and I just figured it out!!!!!!!!!
Here is what you do:
1. Goto http://www.omarvelous.com/ and download his theme.
2. Open the p2.js file and go to line 188.
3. Change [ $('#postcategory').val(-1); ] to [ $('#postcategory').val(''); ]
4. Then open post-form.php, go to line 24 and change [ <?php wp_dropdown_categories('show_count=1&hierarchical=1&name=postcategory&tab_index=4&show_option_none=Categorize it'); ?> ] to [ <?php wp_dropdown_categories('hide_empty=0&name=postcategory&tab_index=4&show_option_none=Choose Category'); ?> ]
I am absolutely exhausted now but I thought I would share because I know everyones been trying to fix this for a long time!!!!
