Hello Uriel,

 It's seem to be like Playlist = Category

so you can assign article in a playlist.  

Rergards.

Hi!

my users create playlists 

1 article = multiple playlists

that would be bad.

If I knew hoe to do tags properly, (ie select parent for tag)  could have :

tag called “Playlist”

then user creates a playlist ((tag) and that gets stored as child of “Playlists” ii.e.

  • playlists
    • playlist-1

Then user views tracks, and there is a button on the page “add to playlist”.

Modal pops up with tag form, user selects on of their playlists and creates new tag:

  • playlists
    • playlist-1
      • cool-track
Because it is a tag, ordering can be achieved as well.
Might be easier to do same thing but with articles instead, or maybe menus... 
You can do ordering I think with drag and drop with seblod’s article manager etc but I have never had much luck using the article manager.

I have a plugin that maps data (like user_usergroup_map but it lacks ordering....

And using a third extention like

https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/my-shortlist/ ?

It dion't support Seblod yet but you can ask for.

Of course a 100% Seblod using will be better but you are talking about about something about item and category thing I think.
