Re: smd_parent: grab parents up the tree from any category

Hello, is there a version for 4.7.1? I have the plugin installed and unfortunately it does not work.

Re: smd_parent: grab parents up the tree from any category

Interesting. When you say “doesn’t work”, how are you using the tag and what do you expect? There should be nothing in the (very small) plugin that breaks under 4.7.x but there have been many changes to the parser and tags. Something may have affected my kludgy attempt at handling parents.

Depending on what you are trying to do, you may not even need the plugin any more as there have been tag improvements that might help out. So when we find out what it is you are trying to achieve with the plugin, someone may be able to help you find a native solution.

Re: smd_parent: grab parents up the tree from any category

In 4.7 <txp:breadcrumb /> can extract (grand-)parents from the category tree via limit and offset attributes:

<txp:breadcrumb category="your_category" limit="1" offset="-1"
    section="" label="" wraptag="" />

Also

<txp:if_category category="your_category" parent="1" name="cat1, cat2, cat3" />

will test if your_category is a child of cat1, cat2, cat3.
