    Hi all,

    it would be REALLY cool if you would add the functionality to the Post editor to allow me to expand and collapse my list of categories as it’s a NIGHTMARE at the moment scrolling up and down the expanded list every time I create a post looking for the relevant categories/ subcategories.

    For example like this plugin which sadly doesn’t seem to be compatible with 4.7:

    Have you tried that plugin? A plugin that has not been updated in 2 years does not mean it won’t work with 4.7.

    Many thanks for the suggestion Andrew – I have just tried it and yep it works 🙂

    I didn’t try beforehand as I was a bit scared it might break something – so far so good.

    Still be good to have this natively in the product though 😉

    It might be good for edge cases but not for everyone. In my opinion adding this feature would encourage people to bloat the IA of the site.

    Agreed – it should be off by default but there if you need it like me 😉

    Same thing for Pages being able to expand and collapse the hierarchy (I have tried a couple of plugins that offer this and they don’t work with 4.7 🙁 )

    CMS Tree Page View works with WP 4.7, https://wordpress.org/plugins/cms-tree-page-view/

    Many thanks for posting – I waded through 23 pages of plugins this afternoon and either didn’t see this one or think it was relevant – seems to do the job 🙂
