How do I edit the category panel on the admin page? (6 posts)

    I need to edit the category panel on the "Edit post" page. The one that is in the right side just below the "Publish" button.

    Which file(s) do I need to look for to edit it?

    What I need to do is find a way to make WordPress display the categories in the same order as they are before I select any of them.

    Once I select some categories and publish the post, if I come back to it, the categories will be displayed without the parent-child indentation and out of order. I'm trying to avoid this, it makes it very difficult to select new categories.

    How can I do it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I looked into this myself at one point. I discovered that it would be non-trivial to implement. :-(

    But, you've inspired me to do something about it. I've opened a ticket and I'll be looking at this issue for WordPress version 3.0

    Has there been any progress in this area, by any chance?

    I'm setting up a number of WP sites that will be used by colleagues (mostly novice WP-users) and they're already saying the way the category list reorganises itself to show current categories at the top is very confusing.

    I'd much rather simply retain the parent/child relationship between the categories and display that by default. Any ideas?
