Re: What's your "must have" plugin?

The two category limit is something I’ve been banging my head against ever since I started using Textpattern over 10 years ago.

I’d love to see unlimited categories in the core sometime in the future. I realise the Devs are very busy people though, so I’m just grateful and happy to see all of the hard work they’re putting into theme support for the upcoming release.

Please open an issue to track this – no issue exists for this topic right now, so as long as it’s on the list it can be considered in future. Thanks!

(makes sense that this is considered whilst we are also planning unlimited custom fields IMO)

Re: What's your "must have" plugin?

Are not you gearing the categories instead of keywords? Hierarchical tree-structure taxonomy (categories, classes, like in UDK) should remain clearly separated from folksonomy, subject indexing by free parallel keywords (tags), IMHO.

Not to derail this thread but my views on categories vs tag taxonomies are well-publicised elsewhere.

Categories are strict and pre-defined and restrictive. Tags (keywords) are classically free-form and unwieldy over time. Somewhere in the middle (albeit over-complicated) is smd_tags. I’d like Textpattern’s categories to be a mashup of categories and structured tagging, with some decent conventions thrown in to make it far (far!) simpler than smd_tags to manage.

We should discuss the finer details in a separate thread in earnest after 4.7.0 is out (but feel free to start the ball rolling now of course after taking a look around for prior mentions of the topic in the forum).


The smd plugin menagerie — for when you need one more gribble of power from Textpattern. Bleeding-edge code available on GitHub.

I’ve submitted an issue for for adding unlimited categories to the core. Hopefully I done it correctly as I’ve never done this before.
