Handling categories

I’m in the process of migrating my site (from Typo) over to Radiant. I’m
still relatively green with Rails and all but have been following this
list
for sometime now and really feel things are headed where I want to take
my
site.

I was wondering if anyone has done something similar, in other words,
migrated a blog to Radiant and if so, how did you handle your blog
categories inside of Radiant? I could create a folder structure of
categories and add pages underneath as needed but that limits me to one
category per post, something I rarely do. I’m open to any suggestions
anyone
has for handling this behaviour.

Also, what about tagging? Kind of the same as categories but generally I
have more tags per post then categories. What sort of mechanisms have
people
used with Radiant for this?

Thanks in advance.

I see Andrew’s patch should be applied to the radiant build 42. Is
there a port of the patch as a plug-in (like has been done for other
behaviors)? Or, what are the pros and cons of applying this patch to
radiant, since I usually update (via svn) my installation regularly to
keep the code base current? Thanks for the clarification. --M

The patch does not apply cleanly to the current revision from SVN.
Unfortunately it is not very straight forward to put this patch into a
plugin, since it actually needs to modify the page model, though it
might
be possible.

I’m still working on the patch, I’ve just been very busy as of late.
Hopefully I’ll get it perfected and into core so it won’t need to be
turned into a plugin :wink:

However, I’ll investigate the possibility of making it a plugin as well.

I have been migrating my small site from Typo to Radiant and I dropped
categories entirely. But I assume putting things is separate folders
might
be a good idea, though http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI suggests to
not
do this.

I am using it and it works great for me. I had to write some mixins to
make
PostgreSQL work with the acts_as_taggable gem, just let me know if you
need
them as well.

Cheers,
Oliver
