Introduction

Categories will allow you to split sites up into their own niche sections, and rank the sites against other sites of the same niche. It is not required that you setup categories for ToplistX, but it will give you the ability to have more ranking lists created. This document describes how to manage your categories.

Viewing/Searching Categories

To view or search your currently configured categories, access the Settings > Manage Categories function from the control panel menu. This will display a page where you will be able to see the currently configured categories and search them if you wish.

In the table that displays the categories, you will find a couple of functions that you can run on a single category. Each of those functions are described below. In addition to running these functions on single categories, you can also run the delete function on multiple categories at once. To run the delete function, put a check in the checkbox next to the categories you want to delete, then press the Delete button at the bottom of the page.

The search results will display a few different pieces of information about the category. Each column of the search results is described below. Adding a Category
