[resolved] How do I relate a category to a category number? (3 posts)

    The FAQ states that "When creating a wishlist you must specify the post category(s) through which to search for other Amazon links. Enter as 'cat=4,7'. Alternatively enter 'cat=local' to search the content on the current page."

    However,I've been unable to find any way in which I can reference a post category that I've created to a particular number. Just how is this done?

    Sorry I have not replied sooner, very busy!

    You are right it is not as obvious as it used to be what the category number is when I first wrote the plugin (many moons ago).

    The only way I can see to find it is to go to the categories admin page, then click on 'edit' category in the page link/url there should be something like &cat_ID=5&. Where 5 is the category ID.

    I will update the plugin in the next version so that it automatically detects numbers or words and then you can use the category 'slug' or numbers to keep it backward compatible.

    Hope this helps,
