Collapse and reduce the height of hierarchical category and taxonomy panels in the WordPress admin (not needed for WordPress 3.5+).
This plugin in only required for versions prior to WordPress 3.5
This plugin collapses and reduces the height of hierarchical category and taxonomy panels in the WordPress admin.
It always bugged me that when editing a post the categories panel took up so much height if you only had a few categories. This was also the same for custom hierarchical taxonomies.
This plugin just adds a couple of styles to your admin to override this and collapse that space.
I created an initial patch for this which, with contributions from other WordPress developers, was included in WordPress 3.5. You can see the patch here...
