Thanks. I didn’t realize that topic was ‘select multiple’. I found the
switches to display all the topics from other classes also. I was able
to tweak it to allow me to select multiple classes at the same time, but
all that broke when it tried to insert to the DB and the array turned to
NULL. It looks like trying to assign it to two Classes at the same time
will take some major work changing a lot of single values to arrays,
etc. as well as restructuring the table in the DB. For our purposes
right now, I’m pretty sure the multiple topics stuff will do the trick.

I’m really enjoying the way I can organize the articles under topics and
subtopics. I was wondering if there was any way to have multiple ways to
get to the same article? That is, one article that may overlap a couple
of different topics would show up under the trees of both topics. I
could display the tree under topicA and find the article, but also be
able to find it in the tree under topicD. Right now, it seems like if I
want to have it show up under both trees, I need to put multiple copies
of the article into the system.
The selection box for a topic is a SELECT MULTIPLE entry, so you should
be able to select multiple topics by control-clicking on multiple topics
in the select widget. It’s also possible to allow for cross-class topic
selection with a little local customization – the code already supports
it, just the option is off by default.
