Re: [pugdog] Alpha-bar global
Okay, here's the code.

It actually creates three separate category groups:- AlphaBar, Top Level, and then the usual regular (level 2) categories.

There are two custom fields in the Category table to achieve this (AlphaBar [Yes,No]) and (Cat_Level [1,2])

Ideally I'd like this same functionality using globals in Glinks, without having to manually edit Build.pm

On the category page itself, I would like the have <%AlphaBar%> if needed (check all subcats for AlphaBar eq 'Yes'), then the level 1 subcats <%SubCats1%>, then the remaining level 2 afterwards <%SubCats2%>.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated Smile
