    Add Category DataType to Umbraco


    I am interested in implementing a "Category" datatype much like those found in uBlogys and Blog4Umbraco.

    Basically I am creating directory of Recipes and I would like the following functionality:

    • Lets say we have a parent node named "Soups"
    • Now we have another parent node named "Favorites"
    • Under "Soup" we have a child node "Chicken Noodle" it has the Category "Favorites" selected.
    • Now if I created a user control to list our Parent nodes. "Chicken Noodle" would appear under "Soups" and "Favorites".

    Did I lose you?

    If anyone has played with the uBlogsy they will understand what I am trying to accomplish.

    Has someone already created something similiar?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I think that I would add a "true/false" DocType, to indicate whether the recipe is a favourite. Then add an XSLT lister to the favourites area to list recipes with this value set. You just need to think through if there is a need to define the orderer of the items in the favourites area if you are listing from more than just soups area.
