  • I added a first category to a development instance and wanted to create a first post but realized there are no post types available:
  • ![Trying to create a post without a post type](https://collab.codidact.org/uploads/bXU97PP4i7mrMyLfSBpoibdU)
  • I then tried to define post types for that category in `edit category/posting`, but couldn't:
  • ![Cannot add post types to category.](https://collab.codidact.org/uploads/e4wq6QsabYc5bQUMbVYUCagW)
  • The selection list was empty, even though I had edited all available allowed post types (Answer, Article, HelpDoc, PolicyDoc). The setup guide and Git README do not mention post types.
  • How can I add post types to a category?
  • ----
  • After going to `admin/post-types` and creating another post type additionally to Answer, Article, HelpDoc, PolicyDoc called Question and simply clicking on save, I can create a post, but it's not visible in the Posts list of the category. As suggested by [this answer](https://collab.codidact.org/posts/285516/285520#answer-285520) I have run again (and had run before) `rails db:seed`. Maybe this is the point where I should simply start again with the setup of QPixel.
  • I ran earlier into this in a slightly different way, now I redid the whole QPixel setup but the problem persists:

  • I then tried to define post types for that category in `edit category/posting` but it looked strange:
  • ![Strange dropdowns in category edit](https://collab.codidact.org/uploads/7tknKfG5WPWyFfgVnfkt2oCN)
  • The selection lists for post type and tag set have an empty line at the beginning. After some editing (including defining a new post type and allowing at least three post types in "Allowed post types") I can create a Post but only as one of the three allowed post types (an Article).
  • It may be related to problems with [rails db:seed](https://collab.codidact.org/posts/285521).

How can I add post types to a category?
I added a first category to a development instance and wanted to create a first post but realized there are no post types available:

![Trying to create a post without a post type](https://collab.codidact.org/uploads/bXU97PP4i7mrMyLfSBpoibdU)

I then tried to define post types for that category in `edit category/posting`, but couldn't:

![Cannot add post types to category.](https://collab.codidact.org/uploads/e4wq6QsabYc5bQUMbVYUCagW)

The selection list was empty, even though I had edited all available allowed post types (Answer, Article, HelpDoc, PolicyDoc).
