directory category selection improvement

lets say I have


if it finds recreation>games>flash it submits
but if it finds recreation>games it asks me for category

I can overcome this by inputting the following





but can't there be a checkbox (use parent category if child category not found)
in order to minimize the needed setup and by default this could be unchecked
for people that have been used to the system working this way

also if I just input 1 level category names
will it expect to find it in the top level ?
or can I assume that it will pick it up even if its 2 levels deep ?

    Just put "*" as a category on the same level like:

    games -> flash
    games -> *

  • sorry not clear
    what does this do ?
  • SvenSven
    the * means to match anything so it will take the last category
  • I want to have all these picked up no matter what level of category


    how do I do it
    its not clear
  • SvenSven
    You would add *games*. However for some engines you need to define the exact previous levels as the categories are used to browse the site. That is "take first category, find a link, click it" followed by "take subcategory, find another link, click it" till there is no more category and the program finds a "submit link to this category here" or alike.

    I am also struggling with this. 

    Let's say I have an iphone app site that I want to promote. 

    Would I use something like this:
    *Smart Phones*::*Iphone*
    *Smart Phones*::*ipad*

    Or will that not work?

    That's how I would do it. Looks pretty good to me.
