New feature - categories


Just want to let you all know that I've been working on adding support for categories, in addition to tags.

The first, most important part of this was to write an admin interface to add/edit categories and to sort categories by the order and by sub-categories.

I have just finished this feature. Basically we going to have support for categories with unlimited nested categories.

Next step will be to add drop-down menu to select the category when posting a question, then add a breadcrumb navigation links to question view pages to point to category.

Then add a new page that will show the list of all categories and sub-categories. That page will probably look similar to the look of most online forums like phpbb and vbulletin, where you see categories, subcategories and latest posts in each category.

More feature will be added, for example we will probably have a way to subscribe to category, similar to subscribing to a tag.

Should I upload the new category editor files now or wait until support for selecting a category when asking a question is done?

It's not finished yet. I am done with coding the classes but just stuck on creating template for displaying categories and nested sub-categories. I will probably just release a very simple template for these and users can always go as fancy as they want in their own templates.

This is great news. I've been waiting patiently for this feature. I think we can wait for the whole feature to be complete so we can test this.
