I've been using WordPress since the early 2000s, and one thing that has upset me for years is how the software was built to not allow users to treat category pages like regular pages.
...I'd want to turn "mysite.com/cars/honda" into a fully immersed page, since it would be of high value to the website user and a major portal page to several dozen sub-pages, including "accord". However, it's not possible to do because WordPress was made to treat categories as nothing more than machine-generated lists of "posts" within them. Frustrating.
I know of the "category-#.php" trick, but it is extremely time consuming to have to hand-create individual pages just so that they show up instead of a standard category page.
My question - is there any plugin, edit, fix, ANYTHING, now in 2011 that makes a WordPress Category page be fully editable to the same extent as a Page or Post?
Thanks in advance!
