How to get additional data in $_category object? (v. 2.1.3)
In wp-includes/category.php (line 149) the get_category function uses this SQL
to create a $_category object:
$_category = $wpdb->get_row("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->categories WHERE cat_ID =
'$category' LIMIT 1");
I've added 3 fields to the categories table (for a new plug-in I'm working on)
which are designed to be administered from the admin pages. When a category is
created or updated, I want 3 additional pieces of information in the categories
table. So I've modified the wp-admin/edit-category-form.php accordingly, and
also the wp_insert_category in wp-admin/admin-db.php (lines 124 and following).
The problem is my $_category object does NOT get the new data from the
additional table fields. Am I missing something? Shouldn't that 'SELECT *'
statement get my new data from the additional table fields? Is the
apply_filters function filtering it out?
Thanks in advance.
