How do I edit the category panel on the admin page?

  • rodrego

    @rodrego

    I need to edit the category panel on the “Edit post” page. The one that is in the right side just below the “Publish” button.

    Which file(s) do I need to look for to edit it?

    What I need to do is find a way to make WordPress display the categories in the same order as they are before I select any of them.

    Once I select some categories and publish the post, if I come back to it, the categories will be displayed without the parent-child indentation and out of order. I’m trying to avoid this, it makes it very difficult to select new categories.

    How can I do it?

    Thanks in advance!

    I looked into this myself at one point. I discovered that it would be non-trivial to implement. 🙁

    But, you’ve inspired me to do something about it. I’ve opened a ticket and I’ll be looking at this issue for WordPress version 3.0

    Ok. Thanks, Mark and Michael for the feedback. Looking forward to this!

    Has there been any progress in this area, by any chance?

    I’m setting up a number of WP sites that will be used by colleagues (mostly novice WP-users) and they’re already saying the way the category list reorganises itself to show current categories at the top is very confusing.

    I’d much rather simply retain the parent/child relationship between the categories and display that by default. Any ideas?

    I come back to it, the categories will be displayed without the parent-child indentation and out of order. I’m trying to avoid this, it makes it very difficult to select new categories.!!!!!
