Is there a plugin that allows to add a category via an entry page? I like how you're able to add categories in Wordpress admin right on a post page, not only via Categories section — this seems to facilitate the categorization of content by editors. It's possible that they'd rather skip the Assign a category button than do some extra work to create the required categories, and ability to enter new categories within the entry page would help to avoid that.

It would probably make more sense to request this for Craft's core (rather than a plugin), but you could also request it specifically as a plugin:



Can you use tags maybe? I think they work kind of the same, and u're able to add new ones right in the entry.

  • I thought about it, but tags don't support parent-child relationships, and it matters in this case — these categories are to represent languages, language groups and dialects. Jul 13, 2015 at 12:29

They will add this functionality in Craft CMS 2.5. Problem solved.
