[solved] Fanfic Count Is Wrong For Moved Catagory
« on: April 15, 2006, 05:23:58 am »
Hi everyone,

I had over 100 Fanfics in my Buffy And Angel Archive, but due to adding heaps more pairings, I had to divide it all up.

I now have a seperate Catagory for Willow Pairings...so I moved all nineteen pairing Catagories over to this new one.

I now have the Catagories:

Buffy And Angel Series [103]

Buffy And Angel Series - Willow Pairings [14]

First of all, the pairings wouldn't go in alphabetical order.  I tried for HOURS and I just couldn't get them to go in the order they're supposed to be.  If someone can help with that part, I'd be grateful.

The major problem, as you can see from the Fanfic counts on the two Catagories above is that the counts are OFF.  There are no longer 103 Fanfics in the Buffy And Angel Series Catagory-most of them were transfered with the pairings into Buffy And Angel Series - Willow Pairings.  I've waited for 24 hours and it's not updated itself.  The 14 Fanfics you can see on the Buffy And Angel Series - Willow Pairings is actually just the NEW Fanfics that were added overnight.

Can anyone please help me out by telling me how to fix the Fanfic counts in these Catagories.  I'm really concerned because we're merging a huge Buffy Archive for these pairings and several hundred Fanfics are not going to be showing up for the right Catagory.

HELP! Desperate need to fix this problem.

Hugs,
Princess Destiny

Did you try the "fix category counts" utility in your admin panel?

You're wonderful.  It fixed the count right up.  Hopefully it'll also fix my other prob with the Catagories not going alphabetical.

Hugs,
Princess Destiny

Augh, no - Catagories still not working.

The Catagories STILL refuse to go alphabetical.

They look like this currently:

Willow/Dru [2]
Willow/Cordy/Faith

Willow/Angel(us)/Spike/Dru [3]
Willow/Angel(us)/Spike/Cordy [10]
Willow/Angel(us)/Faith [2]
Willow/Angel(us) [10]
Willow/Faith

Willow/Angel(us)/Spike/Dru/Darla

Willow/Cordy/Angel(us)

Willow/Angel(us)/Cordy//Buffy

Willow/Connor

Willow/Doyle

Willow/Cordy

Willow/Fred

Willow/Giles

Willow/Giles/Oz/Buffy

Willow/Gunn

Willow/Lindsey

Willow/Oz

Willow/Riley

Willow/Graham

Willow/Spike [38]
Willow/Spike/Angel(us) [28]
Willow/Spike/Faith [1]
Willow/Spike/Graham

Willow/Tara

Willow/Tara/Spike

Willow/Wesley

Willow/Wesley/Connor

Willow/Xander

Willow/Xander/Angel(us) [1]
Willow/Xander/Angel(us)/Spike [4]
Willow/Xander/Spike [4]

As you can see, they're not in order.  Those that are, I had to add from the bottom, backwards.

I go to Catagory and select the pairing, then do the following:

Subcategory of?: Buffy And Angel Series - Willow Pairings
Place in Order After:  Say Willow/Cordy to put in Willow/Cordy/Faith

IMMEDIATELY, the Place in Order After changes to Willow/Connor.  I don't know WHY, but it does it every time.  If I choose another from further down the list (The ones in alphabetical order), it will choose that pairing.

The big thing is, that these Catagories all have Fanfics in them, so I can't remove and readd!  I've added pairings for over 85 shows and never had this problem.

Hugs,
Princess Destiny

You set the order of the categories through the admin panel.  It does not order them alphabetically for you.

Tammy, do you think it's possible to create a mod that will display characters, categories and series etc in alphabetical order?

Characters and series should already be alphabetical. If there's some place where they're not let me know and I'll fix it.  Categories are designed to display in the order you set them though.  If you want categories ordered alphabetically you'll need to alter each place where categories are pulled and change "ORDER BY displayorder" to "ORDER BY category".

Thanks Tammy! :) Do you mind if I post a little article/mod on this?
