Category Overload


Category Overload provides an alternate administrative interface for managing categories in WordPress. If you’ve got a lot of categories this interface may work better for you.


When managing categories in your WordPress admin interface, Category Overload shows only one level of categories and only 50 per level at a time (paged). It replaces the standard category management interface for WordPress.

Click on a category to see the categories under that category.

Known Issues

Minimum required version: WordPress 2.1.

Anything else?

That about does it – enjoy!
