Batch edit/move categories?
« on: February 14, 2008, 01:02:51 AM »
Is there a mod or way to move several categories in one go?

Example:
magazines
--- 2007
--- 2007-name1
--- 2007-name2
If I want to move both 2007-name categories into the category 2007 I now must edit each one.
No problem with 2 but tiresome with several categories.

Is there a way round like there is for images with the batch copy/move/edit/delete mod?

With all due respect but I searched.

hi....

Quote
-magazines
-- 2007
-- 2007-name1
-- 2007-name2

2007-name1 and 2007-name2 should be subcategories of 2007

Quote
-magazines
-- 2007
--- 2007-name1
--- 2007-name2


correct?
cheers

i hope this is what you searching for...

1st) PLEASE test it AFTER you did a BACKUP from your MySQL DataBase!

mysql query for phpmyadmin >>

example:
UPDATE PREFIX_categories SET cat_parent_id = '5' where cat_parent_id = '4' and cat_id not in ('5')

example description:
PREFIX_ = your 4images prefix in mysql database (see config.php under $table_prefix = "xxxxx_";)
SET cat_parent_id = '5' = here set your cat_id from category 2007
where cat_parent_id = '4' = here set your cat_id from category magazines
and cat_id not in ('5') =  here set again your cat_id from category 2007  :arrow: means this one should be not changed.


quick and no need for a mod :)
maybe some1 will do it one day...

hi,

if you want to auto approve uploaded images and change this for all your categories
run this mysql query within your SQL admin

only for registered users:
Code: [Select]
UPDATE PREFIX_categories SET auth_upload = 2, auth_directupload = 2
or for ALL(guests included):
Code: [Select]
UPDATE PREFIX_categories SET auth_upload = 0, auth_directupload = 0
change PREFIX_ to match yours.
cheers
