Categories under grid slider builder

    Hi,

    Is it possible for akita builder to include the categories in the selection checkbox when creating grid slider even if the category does not have a post yet?

    This is becoming a problem for me because when I am adding a category that I am sure will be needed, I cannot make a grid slider based on this category. I am being forced to add a sample content which is not really good on live site.

    Thanks

    There is no easy way to change this from a Child theme. I’ll see about adding this in the next update.

    I think you could actually do it something like this from your Child theme’s functions.php:

    function my_grid_slider_options( $elements ){
    	
    	// Setup new select
    	$select = array();
    	$select['all'] = 'All Categories';
    	$categories = get_categories(array('hide_empty' => false));
    	foreach( $categories as $category ){
    		$select[$category->slug] = $category->name;
    	}
    	
    	// Filter them in
    	$elements['post_grid_slider']['options'][5]['options'] = $select;
    	
    	return $elements;
    }
    add_filter( 'themeblvd_core_elements', 'my_grid_slider_options' );
