silverstripe-blogcategories

Adds a manageable list of categories to the SilverStripe blog Module

extract and put in the root of your SilverStripe install.

Requires the SilverStripe Blog Module to be installed

Requires SilverStripe v3.1+

Use the 3.0 branch for 3.0 compatibility.

Usage

By default adding new blog categories is limited to the BlogHolder class. You can modify this functionality in your config.yml or _config.php to limit it to the BlogTree class instead using the following code.

In _config.php

Config::inst()->update('BlogCategory', 'limit_to_holder', false);

in config.yml

BlogCategory:
  limit_to_holder:  false

Tagcloud

With the BlogCategoryCloud class, you can make weighted "tag clouds" linked to their respective categories. Getters are already included in the BlogEntry and BlogHolder extensions, so in those page types you can simply call $BlogCategoryCloud in a template.

The cloud shows the 10 most popular categories by default. There's also a dedicated view with all tags, which you can link to via $BlogCategoriesMoreLink.

CMS Admins can also easily add a category cloud by using the provided category cloud widget
