This is a plug-in allowing the user to create large amount of categories on the fly.
Go to Posts -> Category Import in the administration paenl, In the text area create categories separated by a new line, e.g. :
Great question! In the same text area, you can create child categories as well! Each category who has a parent is written with a '->' separating parent from child, e.g. :
And for massive assignment, e.g. :
wasn't that easy?
Well, the default slug is the category name with hyphens instead of white spaces and all lowercase.
No problem! When setting a category just add the dollar-sign '$' delimiter after the category name and your new slug! e.g. :
Easy, just add another dollar-sign '$' delimiter after the category slug and wrap your description with double-quotes "". e.g. : (Don't forget to escape double-quotes inside your description!)
Just change it! Just before the text area there's a small input bar that you can put whatever delimiter you want. Notice: currently it is impossible to use the '->' sign as a delimiter.
