#5618 closed enhancement (fixed)

New Categories interface on Write -> Post

  1. Lists all cats hierarchically.
  2. Lists most popular cats flatly.
  3. Ajax cat addition now respects hierarchy. Cats added as a child show up as a child (but not at the top of the list - we can maybe work on that if desired).

Implemented using:

  1. wp-lists.
  2. jQuery UI Tabs. This is a little big for just this one-off thing, but it's very nice and we can surely use it many places. It's reasonably small when minified.

  • Owner changed from anonymous to mdawaffe
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Known Issues:

  1. Adding a subcat to a subcat can sometimes unparent the later.
  2. Load page, type in new cat name, hit enter: Post form is submitted.
  3. Add a subcat, new option in dropdown is "parent child".
  4. New cats don't go into the right place in the dropdown tree (probably won't fix this).

  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened


  1. Fixes all above known issues in FF.
  2. Changes some submit detection in wp-lists. Needs cross browser testing.
  3. Moves gray in-input "tip" ("New Category Name", "Add new tag") to new form-input-tip class. Want to call it something else? form-inline-label?
