    When you have 300 categories - finding the proper one in the list is too hard!

    I think this is an edge case (also 300? Too many categories! No one visiting your site is going to look through them. How many posts do you have per category?)

    I think that even if you have 30 categories it's hard for some users to search for a proper category..

    Have you ever heard about the website with 30 categories?

    I usually recommend people keep to 10 or less. After that, no one pays attention :/

  7. If you can't reduce the categories then you could have somebody program a custom plugin + some auto complete javascript.
