Upgrades - Categories

This week I will be going through some of the updates that are now on the site. The first enhancement is the Categories feature. When you add a new post (which you can now get to from the top tab called "new post") You will see after the Title bar two new bars, one called "TV Shows" and one called "Topic".

If your post is going to be about one or many TV shows, start typing in what TV show you are talking about in the TV shows box. If someone has already used that category, a drop-down box will show up and you can choose from an already supplied TV show or add a new one. If you are talking about more then one show in your post, just add a comma and put in the other one.

If your post is about something else, use to "Topic" box to define what your post is about.

Why did I add this feature? Well mostly for archiving and searching, but you can see on each post it has a link to the topic and if you click on that you can see all posts that have been tagged with that topic. So if you get a little behind on Lost talk you can click on the Lost category link and see all posts about Lost. Its a pretty cool feature.

Here are all the topics that have been pre-populated:

TV Shows: 24, 30 Rock, American Idol, Heroes, House, Lost, Rome, Scrubs, Colbert Report, The Office, The Wire, Veronica Mars

Topics: Announcments, Birthdays, Holidays, Movie Review, New Site, Site Updates
