    Hi Marcus,

    is there a difference between Multisite and normale sites, who can edit event-categories?

    On my site I can only edit in the root-site categories and the subblogs can't.

    Best wishes

    On WordPress multisites, you can turn that off in the settings. Usually, admins on the blog level can edit categories that are specific to their own blog in your WordPress network, but on SocialSkyline.com, I wrote some plugin code to disable the category editing on the admin level and then added the categories to the plugin. This way, I edit the cateogries on the superadmin level only.

    Hi Bruce,

    I searched for an option like that, but can't find it anyway? Can you tell me where this should be?

    Hey Daniel, I am not home at the moment, but what I will do is look at my code when I return home and post it here. The code is already done and you just need to add it to a custom plugin.

    One Note: I edit the categories directly in the plugin itself and not on the WordPress multisite back end admin, but that is easy ;)

    depends, if you're using global tables, then categories (at least our categories) are limited to those of the main site, because otherwise it'd be near impossible to search by category throughout the network.

    if not using global tables, they should work like on a single blog install.

    I'm guessing what Bruce did was add a normal custom taxonomy (maybe even disabling ours first and re-adding it), which you can do even e.g. with the plugin 'custom post types ui'

    Hi,

    yes the problem were the global tables modes. Switch it and now every blog can edit it's own categories.

    Thanks a lot.
