Blog categories...again

Yes, please. Without categories, it doesn't take many blogs for things to become unwieldy.

Exactly.  Quite honestly, while I love what's been done with Blogs so far, if they can't be organised into Categories they just list as some amorphous mass...:blink:

To use my own situation as an example, I have a series of public and user blogs but I'd also like a separate private Category with which to organise my Client (b)logs.

Are you all asking for categories for blogs? Or categories within a blog? 

For blogs, would be nice. We use ours as a Literature area. So having Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, etc. would be nice.

Both, really. Although categories for blogs is more or a priority for my site's needs.

This is exactly the same way we use blogs. We really need a way to categorize and/or sort the main list by topic or genre. I'd also love to see custom fields for blogs, but that's for another topic.

Categories within blogs are also a great idea. Ideally, this would be controlled by permissions so we could disable it by user group.

But please, IPS, make categories behave like filters and not like categories!

If I have a menu structure like this

- Food
-- Apples
-- Bananas

I want both Apples and Banana content to be displayed under the Food menu and not another "There is nothing here yet" block (like we have it in Downloads categories).

I'll give that a +1. Such a frustrating part of Downloads and inconsistent with how other apps in the suite are.

I would like this functionality too. I think this can be done using Pages though. Like how it is being done on the IPS News page using blogs. https://invisioncommunity.com/news

How to replicate something like this? I don't know at the moment. Maybe I will try to hire someone to make a custom blog page for me.

That's because it's Pages they use there, not Blogs.

I see what you mean now. I assumed they were using pages somehow to organize their blog post using tags on a custom page.
