RE: I know that this is possible because I seen it in the demo. How do you make the categories editable on the front end?
Which demo? The categories can not be edited from the frontend. You can filter by a category from the frontend. Is that what you mean?02/20/2019 at 9:22 am #485185
Hello Steven I am referring to this page here https://connections-pro.com/demo/extension/form/.
On the second option you have the ability to add categories. Is this something that if a user is managing there directory listing they can actually select the categories that they want to add/remove to/from their listing.

Ok, I was thinking something different when you asked about editing categories. I was thinking actually editing the category. The Form addon does allow which categories are attached to a submission. It does not add new ones. It is a list of the categories already added.
If you want user to be able to add and maintain their own entry, install and configure the Link addon. If you want to allow the user to do this from the frontend instead of their admin profile page, install and configure the Form addon. Just do not enable the “Submit New Entry” option as mentioned in the Form docs.
Hope this helps!02/20/2019 at 12:09 pm #485221
For some reason mine does not give me the option to edit categories. Everything else is there. Could it be that I have unchecked something? I checked on permission and everything else I can think of.. However something is preventing the user to ability to maintain categories.02/20/2019 at 12:22 pm #485222
Navigate to the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Form tab. Ensure the Category box is checked. You can also drag and drop them to be in the desired display order.
Hope this helps, let me know.02/20/2019 at 12:25 pm #485223
