Yahoo style categories on HomePage

posts: 22 United Kingdom

(I've had a look around but can;t see any posts addressing/asking this, so apologies in advance if it's already been covered.)
What I'm trying to do is change the homepage of my tiki so that part of it has a layout of the categories on the site.



Welcome blah blah

Category 1 (x objects)
SubCat a (y objects), SubCat b (z objects), ...

- much like the old yahoo directory approach.

And frustratingly much like the current tiki directory approach!

So really,
a) Is there a way for me to get the functionality of the directory (but with internal links)?
b) incorporate that into my homepage?

Does that make sense?? Thanks masses for any help

In admin ->general, you can give a homepage .. It can be /tiki-browse_categories.php

You can also create a plugin or a module that list the category to be able to insert it in any wiki page . Try the wiki plugin CATEGORY- perhaps it will be ok for you.

Thanks Sylvie - that's helpful - will have a play around with modules
