Adding a new Category

Nov 25, 2010 at 4:21 PM

Hello Kiggenites! 

a total newbie question, but I've been trying to add a new category to my website.. by browsing to the database folder in my control panel's left pane, then expanding Website Name >>  tables >> Category >> Data >> Add new record, but I'm not sure where to get that long ID number from.. is this a GUID? All I know is it's some unique number/character combination identifying you to the server you connect to.. 

But where should I get the GUID from?

Any help is quite appreciated folks, and a big hello to Nachid :)

For the record, I've also tried some of those online GUID generators, but none of them seems to be working.. 

Thanks for your help

I'm not sure about the latest version of Kigg, but in previous version categories were cached. If you add a new one you need to make the cache invalid. It should be enough to change and save web.config.
