Automatically Select Parent Category Plugin for wordpress


#1

Hello all,

I’m trying to get this plugin to hook into “The Events Calendar”. They pointed me to their hook to save events

tribe_aggregator_before_save_event

I’m importing events from google calendar and what I need is for their plugin to select the parent category when creating the new event. I tried simply hooking into the plugin I downloaded that does seem to do this when you select the events’ categories but it breaks the import functionality when I try to use the hook. Any ideas? Is there an easier way of doing this? Could you all suggest PHP that could accomplish this? I’m a PHP noob so don’t expect me to know anything about this.

Here is the code from the plugin

function super_category_toggler() {

$taxonomies = apply_filters(‘super_category_toggler’,array());
for($x=0;$x<count($taxonomies);$x++)
{
$taxonomies[$x] = ‘#’.$taxonomies[$x].‘div .selectit input’;
}
$selector = implode(’,’,$taxonomies);
if($selector == ‘’) $selector = ‘.selectit input’;

echo ’

';

}
add_action(‘admin_footer-post.php’, ‘super_category_toggler’);
add_action(‘admin_footer-post-new.php’, ‘super_category_toggler’);
?>

Thank you for your help!
