The "Category Write Panels Plugin" is awesome! It is exactly what we needed. We are now using it in conjunction with the "Ozh Admin Menu Plugin."
The only minor problem we see is that the top level menu (the name of the new write panel) is clickable (thanks to Ozh) but it leads to nowhere, while the normal WP menu's top level option is clickable to somewhere important.
Ozh lets us turn the top level clickability on or off. However, off is not an option for us because of the core WP top level menus.
We'd love it if the top level of each new write panel (its name) was clickable to, say, the exact same URL as the "Edit" option of the new write panel. Can anyone give us a clue where to look to tweak things to make that happen? Thanks in advance!
