Category Filtering in Post Edit

  1. tomaspollak


    Short and sweet: Some blogs have a lot of categories, so there should be a way to filter them while writing or editing a post in order to tag it.

    I believe the best way to do it would be plain Javascript. And I'm NOT talking about AJAX. Just a regular expression filter triggered by a onkeydown or whatever.

    Could work much the same as the filter in Firefox when viewing the about:config page.

    This appears to be an edge case as there are a ton of plugins for front end category sorting but I could find nothing for backend sorting.

    I think the mod can add this to the Maybe Later status.

    Since this Idea was submitted we have introduced tags, which accomplishes this. For categories, there's also a view of most used categories on the post editor.
