Sync Categories From Your CMS to Kapost

*Connect your CMS to Kapost before trying to sync your CMS categories. An Admin can do learn how to do this here.

To sync your CMS categories:

  1. Hover over the settings wheel on the left navigation bar
  2. Click Content
  3. Scroll down to Categories
  4. Select Turn On Categories
  5. Select Use CMS Categories

If you update categories overtime, you will need update them in Kapost by going to the categories section (steps above) and clicking Update Categories. 

Additional Category Customizations

Choose "Adding a category isr equired for all submissions" if you would like the field to display as required, with a red asterisk. 

Use Custom Categories or CMS Categories to use custom categories. Type one category on each line. Use hyphens to create child categories. For example:

  • Breakfast
  • Drinks
  • Coffee
  • Juice
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Multiple Sites and Categories
In Kapost, you can connect to multlpe CMS's.  If you have connected to more than one, you can choose to bring categories from all your CMS's into Kapost.  If you do this, we'll display them all in one long list.  Above each CMS's will be that CMS's name.  For example, for the site "MySite" I might have 4 categories: blue, green, yellow, red.   I also have a second site called "SecondSite" and it has 2 categories: bird, dog.   In the Settings area, I have selected to synch both of these CMS's.  Then the category list will appear like this: 

  • MySite
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • SecondSite
  • Bird
  • Dog
