Hi there, just upgraded my site to Joomla 2.5 and installed Cobalt, and now creating... I intend using Joomla core for standard ïnformation type pages, and using Cobalt for my reviews section as I need authors/publishers to submit their books online and my reviewers to submit their reviews.
BUT, and this is my concern: Both sections (review requests and reviews) will obviously have the same categories, e.g. a review request will be submitted to category historical, and the final review will of necessity have to have the same category.
For review requests, the submissions are public, but only the reviewers may see and search these categories. For reviews only the reviewers may submit and the articles are for public viewing.
I do not want someone searching the review categories to find any links to review requests, i.e. i need to specify on the reviews page what section the readers may search.
Is this possible or will having the same categories confuse the issue? Would it be better to make some change to the category name, or will having a similar word, e.g. historical, in both section's categories be a problem. I'd appreciate your response as I would like to proceed with these, but don't want to go to all that work if I have to work in a different category name altogether.
It also occurs to me that I may in the future have overlapping categories between Joomla and Cobalt, i.e. with same/similar names. How will this affect the searches and permissions?
Many thanks, and please bear with me, I'm totally new to J25 and Cobalt.
