WP 2.7 is great but there are many problems concerning categories management.
First of all, categories have to have different slugs and it’s being a real problem when you’re using WP as a CMS: many categories and subcategories have the same name and slug (Books > Reviews, Movies > Reviews, Restaurants > Reviews…), but with 2.7 every category/slug has to be renamed, as well as all the links within every post linking to another post because slugs must be different (i.e: using permalinks, Reviews in Books will become books/booksreviews and movies/moviesreviews instead of simply be books/reviews and movies/reviews). Totally WEIRD.
One of the many other issues is the category ID. A CMS structure is using a lot of categories and their IDs are crucial. With 2.7, categories ID are hard to find and manage. Why is everything about category management becoming so complicated with WP 2.7?
Last but not least, a bug I guess. In the admin when writing a new article, if you add a new category it creates duplicates categories. Hopefully when checking the category tab, everything seems to be ok…
WP 2.7 is the best blog platform I know but it’s spoiled by 2 or 3 issues I consider huge. If anyone can help me about the category slug or category ID management, you’re welcome because I’m stocked right now and can’t upgrade to WP 2.7. Many people I know using WP won’t upgrade either until category management is being reviewed.
This is really too bad…
