Hello,

Just like loading custom fields for certain categories, I am looking for a way to load plugin fields in the item-post.php only when the user selects a certain category and its subcategories. Is this possible? Could someone please help with this? Thanks!

Hello,

Isn't that what the attribute plugins do? For example "Product Attributes", you select plugin categories in admin and then the fields show when category selected in item post.

Regards.

Code: [Select]
// my-plugin-name = the Short Name of the plugin

//add fields
function my_plugin_item_post($catId = null) {
    if (osc_is_this_category('my-plugin-name', $catId)) {
        require_once'your file';
    }
}

function my_plugin_item_edit($catId = null, $itemId = null) {
    if (osc_is_this_category('my-plugin-name', $catId)) {
        require_once'your file';
    }
}

//post
osc_add_hook('item_form', 'my_plugin_item_post');
//edit
osc_add_hook('item_edit', 'my_plugin_item_edit');

//set categories for this plugin
function my_plugin_configure_categories() {
    osc_plugin_configure_view(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__));
}

osc_add_hook(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__) . "_configure", 'my_plugin_configure_categories');

Patrick - thanks some plugins don't have that setup to configure categories.

Clainbehtuk,

Thank you - I tried this for the tags plugin and it still loads the form for any category even though I configured one category/subcategories from the admin area. I also disabled (not uninstall) the plugin and reloaded it, I cleared the cache/content and tried again but still it will load the form when any category is selected.

Can you please see if I did anything wrong?

Code: [Select]
function my_plugin_item_post($catId = null) {
    if (osc_is_this_category('tags', $catId)) {
            require_once( TAGS_PATH . 'item_form.php' ) ;
    }
}

function my_plugin_item_edit($catId = null, $itemId = null) {
    if (osc_is_this_category('tags', $catId)) {
            require_once( TAGS_PATH . 'item_form.php' ) ;
    }
}

//post
osc_add_hook('item_form', 'tags_form');
//edit
osc_add_hook('item_edit', 'tags_edit_form');

//set categories for this plugin
function my_plugin_configure_categories() {
    osc_plugin_configure_view(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__));
}
osc_add_hook(osc_plugin_path(__FILE__) . "_configure", 'my_plugin_configure_categories');

Also, if I can get this to work - is it also possible to move this plugin field right below the categories dropdown?

Thanks again.

Replace " osc_add_hook('item_form', 'tags_form'); " with " osc_add_hook('item_form', 'my_plugin_item_post'); " and " osc_add_hook('item_edit', 'tags_edit_form'); " with " osc_add_hook('item_edit', 'my_plugin_item_edit'); ".

Hi Patrick,

 had it first like that - as you suggested below ie. osc_add_hook('item_form', 'my_plugin_item_post'); and it did not work, so I wanted to try (not very smart) the way the hooks are in the plugin index.php file.  Anyway, the issue not solved - t still loads the tags form for any/all categories.
