Categories inherit their subcategory Topic Template?


(Carey B) #1

Just wondering if this is an overlooked issue or a feature.

I have a category, say "Marketing"
And a subcategory of Marketing called Ads
I create a topic template for Ads that has specific information needs for each topic in Ads but is worthless in Marketing (and Marketing could possibly use its own topic template.)

But Marketing inherits the Ads topic template.
Is that on purpose?

No, very much not on purpose. There is no category setting inheritance.

What are the exact steps to reproduce this. I created a “baseball” subcategory over on try with a topic template, it is not inherited by the sports parent category. Feel free to sign up and test, try is deleted everyday.
