This was discussed many times in the context of the classic editor (see #3130, #14916, #10982 and the many duplicates mentioned in #10982's history). Since this ticket was opened, the new block editor was released in WordPress, and it actually includes the improvement that you are suggesting. I have attached a screenshot showing the new behavior. In short, all selected categories still rise to the top, but their hierarchy is also pulled up, even when the parent categories are not selected. When there are more than a handful of categories, a search box is also displayed to filter categories. The results of the search also maintain the hierarchy.

  • I am taking my leave of Weblog Tools Collection, and thanks for everything! March 31, 2013 1:41 pm
    Not many of the present readers might know me very well, and that in part, is the reason that I have made the decision to transfer WLTC to more willing and presently capable hands. I am a stranger on my blog and the time has come for me to make sure that this blog, its contents and its knowledge are archived and preserved and maybe rejuvenated at a later time. I delved into blogging tools back in 2004 when I started my Masters degree in CS. I wanted some code to mess around with in my free time and everyone was talking about blogging. I looked into a variety of tools, built a small Linux server for myself at home, and installed a few of the tools that were freely available at that time. I had a heck of a time getting a hold of MT (Moveable Type, the most well-known name) and […]

  • Where to Find WordPress News March 31, 2013 12:05 am
    The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also take a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at Make Though it’s only specific to the blogging platform, News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

  • Do You Work From Home? March 12, 2013 2:00 pm
    There has been a lot of talk lately about working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce. Web-based software, like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, are taking over the publishing industry and allow you to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Though, even though they can be managed  from home, working from home and maintaining a distributed workforce is not yet broadly acknowledged in society as a successful and efficient alternative to working in an office. Despite working with software that doesn’t need to be tied to one specific workstation, you could still find yourself tied to a desk in cubicle. I work full-time for Automattic and have the pleasure of both working from home and setting my own hours. After all, I only need a browser, an email client, and IRC client, and Skype to do my job.

  • Jer Clarke: A Buddhist Guide to WordPress Development March 18, 2019 11:07 am
    Sometimes the best advice on the latest and greatest technology is very old, even 2600 years old. Buddhadhamma, the philosophy and religion founded by Siddharta Gottama in ancient India, is broad and deep, offering a path to emotional liberation as well as common sense advice for getting through everyday life with as little suffering as possible. In this talk, we’ll walk through the essential proposals and conclusions of Buddhism and find ways this wisdom can help us in our WordPress and web development practice. How do our denial of impermanence, our aversion to discomfort and our identification with the material world get in the way of doing good work? How can we be free of the suffering that inevitably comes from disappointment? How should we act in each moment to be effective and at peace in the long run? These questions will be answered through the lens of the challenges and frustrations inherent to building sites with WordPress. The talk will also include a short guided meditation and advice for incorporating meditation into your WordPress life. This talk is intended for anyone, from new users to long-time bloggers to hardcore developers.Presentation Slides »

  • Jamie Schmid: Don’t Break Live- How Using a Staging Site Can Make Your Life a Lot Easier March 18, 2019 10:56 am
    Have you ever updated your WordPress site or plugins, and suddenly found yourself looking at The White Screen of Death? I What you thought was going to be a routine update has just brought down your entire website, and the panic sets in fast. If this is your live website, that can quickly translate to loss of revenue, customer trust, and a lot of time and money down the drain. Not to mention the very bad day you are about to have. It’s so important to keep your WordPress site, plugins and themes updated due to the many security threats that are constantly being found and fixed – but what happens when one of these updates breaks your site? In this talk I will cover tips and strategies for keeping your site updated safely, what to do if it breaks, and how to avoid breaking your live site in the first place through use of a staging site that runs alongside your live website. Big content changes, updates, and trying out new designs increases the potential for disaster when these changes are made directly to your live website. Fortunately, there are many options for creating and managing a staging site, ranging from the most simple click-to-push, to more complex solutions integrated into a developers’ workflow. I will show you how to set up your very own staging server in a few different ways, so you can push that Update button without putting your live site in jeopardy.
