[FIXED IN ] Empty categories not listed even when show empty categories selected

Post by mcsmom » Sat Aug 18, 2007 2:38 am

If you make a Section layout menu link and select Empty Categories in Section "show"  the empty categories do not show.

(Adding a content item to a category without changing the link makes it appear.)/


update: fixed in svn

Just out of curiosity, why would you like to see "empty" category names?
Would it not be a good idea to put some explanatory text about the category in the description of that category and switch on Show Description? That way you always have a nice looking "empty category list' if no article is published or has past its sell-date.
Note: Sending me private messages for personal support, without this been requested, would lead to ignoring any of your posts in future!

Yes, I would like the description to also display. :)

Actually, different people do things for different reasons, and yes I would also like to be able to sometimes display just a list of tites, chich might just be, for example, the names of the teachers in a school.

Bug exists. And layout is also problematic.
