    Can someone develop a plugin that restores the following panels to the sidebar on the "Write Post" page?

    Categories, Tags, Comments & Pings, Post Author.

    Or if this is simple enough to be done without a plugin, how can I accomplish this?

    There is a WordPress Hack which is simple to implement for this issue made by Judy at persistentillusions.com 04/16/08 archive to make your Write post/page screen look pre-2.5 at

    Basically it involves upload a few php files and a css file to wp-admin folder plus refreshing the page. I logged out and after log in, viola! the write screen I love was back to mama :-) I just couldn't bear using WordPress as a CMS and scrolling down a frame with 6 entries at a time to select from 60+ categories. I hope this helps you till a wordpress plugin comes along.

    P.S. You might like to vote for and comment on this Idea: "Revert 2.5 Write Screen to 2.3" at http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic.php?id=1354. Hopefully, this will be incorporated by in the next version. Cheers.
