Can we create category column same as SharePoint metadata column?

Hi Everyone,

Can we create column in page's form for category, similarly as SharePoint taxonomy column. My requirement is that publisher just type the category name in textbox and suggestions should be shown based on typed text. My category structure is too lengthy and complex(parent/child), publishers have to go deeper into category tree structure by clicking on every node which I don't want.

Hey Shubham,

looks like the CSS and javascript files are not there, there were global files with the package that should have been placed, you need to have the following checked when importing:

  • Import Files (recommended)
  • Import Code Files
  • Import Global folders

The global folders has the CSS / javascript, although i probably should have included the files in a sub folder to the form with _files, learned that trick after developing this.

Try re-importing it with those checkboxes and then clear cache and resign macros!
