When I want to make a new custom menu and look at the category box all I see is an alphabetical list of categories with no hierarchical layout like what I see on the category admin page… this makes it VERY hard to know which category is which as i have many child categories of the same name but different parents. Therefore I have no idea what category to drag and drop in what position in my custom menu.
Does this make sense?
If it does, is there any way I can either view the categories on the custom menu admin page in hierarchical order OR when i add a parent category the child categories automatically are added in hierarchical order.
It certainly does make sense if you want to manipulate that hierarchy in a user-friendly way rather than having to dive into the raw code and template tags. Little things like this are stopping WP becoming a great CMS 🙂
