There are four CGIs whose purpose is to view and manipulate
categories in various ways. All of these CGIs take a category as part
of the PATH_INFO, after the notebook name; this is the current
- category.cgi shows the category tree for a notebook,
rooted at the current category. If you specify the value "edit" for
the cgi argument mode, you will also see links to the
other category CGIs.
If the current category has entries filed under it, those entries
will be displayed beneath the category tree. If mode is
"edit", the entries will have edit buttons.
directory]/category.cgi/mynotebook will show you the entire category tree for the 'mynotebook' notebook.
directory]/category.cgi/mynotebook/books will show you a tree of the subcategories of the 'books' category, and all entries filed under 'books'.
directory]/category.cgi/mynotebook/books/sci-fi will show you a tree of the subcategories of the 'sci-fi' subcategory of the 'books' category, and all entries filed under 'books/sci-fi'.
directory]/category.cgi/mynotebook/books?mode=edit will show you a tree of the subcategories of the 'books' category, with links to the category manipulation CGIs. It will also show all entries filed under 'books', with an edit button for each entry.
- category-add.cgi adds a subcategory underneath the
current category. If you do not specify a current category, it will
add a top-level category. You must enter the notebook password to add
- category-edit.cgi allows you to rename the current
category or move it to a different parent. You must enter the notebook
password to edit a category.
- category-delete.cgi allows you to delete the current
category. When you delete a category, all the entries filed under that
category are removed from the category, but the entries themselves are
not deleted. You cannot delete a category that has subcategories (so
delete the subcategories first). You must enter the notebook password
to delete a category.
