Hi there !

I want to share a little trick to map discussions categories with articles categories and I hope to find this in a future version.

My idea is simple, just put the same alias in content categories AND easydiscuss categories to map them.

File : plugins/content/easydiscuss/easydiscuss.php

Change line 618

$data['category_id'] = $params->get('category_storage', 1);


// Map discussion category with article category if alias are the same
$db = JFactory::getDbo();
$db->setQuery("SELECT FROM #__categories AS a LEFT JOIN #__discuss_category AS b ON a.alias = b.alias WHERE b.alias = '" . $article->category_alias . "'");
$row = $db->loadRow();
if( !empty($row) ) {
$data['category_id'] = $row[0];
} else {
$data['category_id'] = $params->get('category_storage', 1);

Enjoy ;)
