post_formats and categories and set post categories (3 posts)

    Prior to p2 1.4 it was possible to have another input tab (say "Alarms") so that the input choices were "Status Update - Blog Post - Quote - Link- Alarms"

    This could be achieved by adding

    <li><a id="alarms"<?php if ( $post_type == 'alarms' ) : ?> class="selected"<?php endif; ?> href="<?php echo site_url( '?p=alarms' ); ?>" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Alarms', 'p2' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Alarms', 'p2' ); ?></a></li>

    to <div id="postbox"> in post.php

    and adding "alarms" to the $accepted_post_cats in ajax.php

    so if somebody clicked Alarms and inputed something in the input box it was recorded in Category Alarms.

    I appreciate that post_formats is the way to go But how can I incorporate the above functionality (kind of front-end category setting - set post categories??) in p2 v 1.4.?

    Any ideas very welcome

    Hi valuser,

    I think I have an answer for you: here's how we can bring back categories as they were in versions prior to 1.4.0:
