Using Category ext configuration

The topics categories have fields from column1 to column5, which can be used to enter any information such as category description, image path, etc.
The content you enter will be retrieved by the [Content][TopicsCategory][list] API.

By editing the column names and type from the Category ext configuration in the Topics Group Editor, you can add these fields to be filled and easily select the image path for users via Kuroco's management page.

In this tutorial, we will explain how to use the category expansion settings.
