    Hi Yarrick;

    I posted this on your site, but i guess this might be a more suitable place.

    I am configuring the plugin, but i am having trouble.
    When i try to submit a link, using the addlink shortcode, i cannot see the category drop down list. I have set "show" for "link category label" and have entered valid category numbers in the "links category selection list" of the library settings page. The field label and box do not appear on the addlink page area. Can you please advise?

    Thank you

    Renyi

    HI;

    I've been trying to work it out.

    I went into the link-library.php file, and i set

    $options['showaddlinkdesc'] = true;
    $options['showaddlinkcat'] = true;

    and

    function PrivateLinkLibraryAddLinkForm($selectedcategorylist = '', ...............
    $showaddlinkcat = true, $showaddlinknotes = true,

    ---- as i thought it might set the categories to show. It didn't change anything or it stopped the plugin from working.

    Please help.

    Thank you

    Renyi

    I am glad you sorted it out. Sorry I did not answer quicker. I have been very busy between home and work.

    Hi Yarrick;

    The problem has returned. This time i tried 3 different libraries.

    There seems to be some problem recognizing categories somehow.

    If i left the "Link category selection" field empty then all of the link cats displayed, but i dont want them all and i cant exclude any. But then i added 2 cats, and it worked. After that i added another 4 and then no cat list display.

    Out of interest i placed 2 cats in the "Categories to be excluded " under common parameters - to no effect.

    I also noticed that empty cats do not display , although i deselcted "hide results if empty" under common parameters.

    Pages are

    Hi;

    I have been playing around with this one.

    I started a new library again, and noted and save one change per time in the library settings.

    When i de-selected "hide results when empty" from the common parameters, the category drop down disappeared when using the addlink shortcode.
    When i re-selected hide results, the dropdown returned. It was a repeatable condition.

    Also i noticed that empty results were still hidden using the link-library, even if hide results was deselected.

    If there is some way to fix this, please let me know.

    Thank you

    Can you see if you are still having problems with this in the latest version of Link Library?
