Category Interface (4 posts)

    I’m slightly surprised, in a HCI way that both WordPress has the classic interface blooper of “Having to create a category BEFORE you attach it to a post"

    Often, you don’t know what category something should be in until you’ve written it. And it’s such an easy fix… at the left-hand-side in the admin interface, where the category checkboxes are… simply add a text field at the bottom, so that you can create a category at the same time as creating a post. Simple… ta da!

    That shows some of the interface (it's the latest code as of 5 minutes ago) but for the given login, it doesn't show the 'Add Categories' which is in the dropdown. It IS there though.

    And due ? When it's ready - I have not the slightest idea
