Select subcategory from Write Post page? (5 posts)

    I have a couple of different categories, sometimes with one subcategory, and sometimes with nested categories. Instead of writing the post and then going to manage and then changing the category to the subcategory, is there a way to get this functionality on the Write Post page?

    If a Category has no Posts, or has existing Posts associated it should show during Writing a Post.

    If a Category is assigned only to Links, then that Category will not show--you have to manually add it during Writing a Post but then it should show from then on...

    The problem is that during Writing a Post, the only categories listed are Blogroll, Uncategorised abd Web Programming. However, my actual categories definied under the Manage section:
    Blogroll
    Uncategorised
    Web Design
    Web Programming
    -CSS
    -Javascript
    --Ajavax
    -PHP

    So far there is one post that is in the CSS (and therefore Web Programming) category.

    There is some tie however to the blogroll link categories. If I have an uncategorized link (i only have one link in my blogroll right now) then it displays all categories in the write post section, but if the blogroll link is under web programming, the only categories available are uncategorized, blogroll, and web programming

    Quoting myself here:

    Right, but why then would the categories be displayed on the Write a Post page if my blogroll is either empty or the links set to uncategorised?
