Unable to add category description

posts: 733 United States

Hello folks, I am in a quandary, I am unable to add a category description after category creation. I can navigate to "Admin Categories" and there is an "Create/Edit Category" tab, but below the tab there is no option to add a description to the chosen category. We are running Tiki 14.0 Beta, please see screen shot below.
The only option is to add a category, just for kicks and giggles and added a description to the category "Hand Tools" and saved, nothing materialized.
Thanks for helping.

Prephaps this is a problem in the beta only, I just tested on theTiki Demo site and it works just fine.

  1. From the Admin Categories page, select the category to edit and click Edit.
  2. On the Edit this category tab, enter a new descirption in the Description field.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Browse the updated category and the new description appears.

Can you upgrade the the full TIki 14 version?

Rick, thanks so much for your reply, it appears Gary hit on the problem, the problem is not Tiki, it's my eyes. Sheesh.

By the way Rick when you stated upgrade to the full 14.0 version, I thought I had the full version? or am I using the wrong the terminology, because i was under the impression all of 14.0 was Beta still?

Hi John,

If you notice the small wrench icon to the left of the category name, you can click on this and an "edit" link will show. Click this and you get the form needed to input the description. I agree it's not obvious - I went through the procedure to test and didn't notice the wrench either on the first loop through, but then checked a Tiki 12 site where the lists show the icons directly without the popup.

I feel like a bonehead Gary, of course the wrench! Sheesh, thanks for waking me up to this. It works fine, the world is right.
