WP Admin Category Search

Description

The search fields simply filter the lists in their current box.

Use the settings page to manage the location of search fields.

Simple as the sun, using easy JS.

Especially useful when there are a lot of categories, like in case of a shop.

It needs jQuery to run !
Trims beginning and ending spaces !

Really nice and useful plugin but it can be even better if there will be live search (with no need in pressing 'ok' after each letter)

I am so very grateful to you for creating this plugin to search hundreds of categories in e-commerce. A major time saver. This is a must have plugin. Works great! Thanks again. 🙂 Doc
