Where is VIEW BY CATEGORY in Edit Posts? (5 posts)

    I've been thinking the same thing for a while. I often move posts around between categories, particularly when one gets too large so I split it up. I'd also love to go back to my old single category posts and add extra categories for some of them now that I can use multiple categories for each entry. And I'm sure there will be even more moving and splitting once I get the sub category thing sorted. I really miss this functionality.

    I would love to have this feature. I edited a lot this way when I was using MT.

    Same here. This would be much more meaningful to me that by month.... why didn't I think ofthat?

    The obvious reason is that since category is not stored as a part of the post table, but is a separate table with a many to many relationship, this would require modifying the base database query for the template. This is more tricky than a basic sort / filter like month.
    This is an interesting challenge for someone who wants to try developing a plugin...
