Older/newer with parent/child nested categories

I use a nested category structure to organise my content.

I need the category pages to show articles in child categories in addition to the current category.

I can achieve this using the article_custom tag and the parent attribute, but then the older and newer tags don’t work, so I have no pagination feature.

Could anybody suggest a workaround for this issue please?

I’m starting to think that the nested category structure is not a good way of organising my content!

Many thanks

Re: Older/newer with parent/child nested categories

You should be able to include also child categories in <txp:article /> with depth attribute:

<txp:article depth="1" /> <!-- or more -->

If this does not work, <txp:article_custom pageby /> should be able to paginate.

That does work, many thanks.

The depth attribute isn’t in the documentation but will be very useful to me going forward.

Please feel free to submit a patch, this would be a truly win-win way to improve the docs.
