[resolved] How to just broadcast Categories (single or entire tree) (7 posts)

    Is there any way to broadcast categories, either a single category or an entire tree? When broadcasting an article, I noticed that the categories where not created on the new site. If not possible, is there a plan to implement this?

    If you mean the categories the article belongs to: they should be broadcasted.

    If you mean even the unselected categories, then why not create a temp post with all categories, broadcast it and then delete the child post?

    Using this solution with a "all-categories-post" to bring our categories tree to the child sites, I ran into a strange issue: All of the categories were broadcasted (as I can see in post overview and/or within the post creation screen itself), but only a couple of them appear in the categories list.

    That is, I got 16 categories broadcasted, but only 6 appear in the list (however, the count says "English (16)"?

    Set up:
    - WP 3.8.1
    - ThreeWP Broadcast 2.18 + Premium
    - WPML 3.1.4 with translation manager

    I think WPML is the source of the problem, with its caching of categories and posts.

    Mind sending me an e-mail so that I can be reminded to try and debug WPML to fix this? edward@plainview.se

    I'm working on a solution that can broadcast taxonomies, so one bypasses broadcasting posts just to get categories sent.

    The Premium Pack now contains the "sync taxonomies" plugin that ... well... syncs taxonomies. So you don't have to broadcast a post just to get all of the taxonomies copied over.

    Marking as solved just for the sake of housekeeping.
