/wp-admin/categories.php needs a edit_category_form_fields hook.

In /wp-admin/edit-category-form.php there is a edit_category_form_fields hook at the end of the table above the submit button.

In categories.php this hook doesn't exist so you can't use the same method to attach functionality to the edit category form in both places it appears.

Having this hook in place would make developing category related plugins a lot better.

Since edit-category-form.php builds the form using a table, but categories.php uses divs, then the actions should be separate.

Patch attached adds an 'add_category_form_fields' hook.

  • Cc westi added
  • Keywords commit removed
  • Milestone changed from 2.9 to 3.0

Could you attach a simple plugin demonstrating how this hook would be used.

I don't want to add a hook here which is untested and doesn't work correctly and I think this can wait till 3.0
