Multiple Categories for a Download
« on: 03.03.2020 03:33:30 »
I would like to request a feature - the ability to assign multiple categories to a single download.



Here's my use case:  I have a retro website (http://commodore.software) that is a repository for old software, manuals, books, etc.  Often I find that something fits into multiple categories when classifying the  items.   Instead of uploading duplicate items, it would be nice to be able to just have something like a linux softlink.

Hi
You can use the same downloadable file in multiple categoies.  That is a downloadable file can be linked to many Downloads and these Downloads may be in different categories.
In jD 3.2 you can only do this from the backend when creating the Download with the option 'Choose File from other Download'.In the forthcoming jD 3.9 series, presently in beta test, you can also do that from the Front End as well.
