Hello people of all knowledge,

I am using dnn Blog module v6 by Peter Donker.

Is there a video or article that explains how categories work? I have created Categories but, when adding a new blog, it does not allow to select the category. So how do categories work?

I saw the DNN Hangout from a week ago that Peter  explained how the blog module works. He created the categories but did not show how a particular blog article gets assigned to a category. I have Googled ad-infinitum for the answer but have not seen anything that explains it. So now I query the Braniacs.

Thanks so much in advance for your help!!

You may need to restart WLW if you're using that. When you blog live on the site it should show up under metadata.

I am not using WLW - although I may later. For now, I am just trying to get "category" assigned to a specific Blog article.
I copied the blog module and created a template "CategoryList [System]. This "CategoryList" module shows the categories I created under the "Admin" buttons module of the Blog Module.
I would assume, when I go to create a "new blog article", I would be able to select category. What am I missing?

Oh ... duh ... I see it under that metadata tab.  When I click on  "Category A" in the CategoryList module, it does display the only blog article that was assigned to "Category A" ... but in the CategoryList module, it shows "Category A (0)".  Isn't the number in the parenthesis supposed to be a count of the # of blogs in that category? I would have expected (0) not (1).
