Category filter


If your site has a large number of categories, it can be helpful to be able to search through them rather than scrolling to find the one you need. This plugin adds a text box to the category list which filters the list in place, rather than providing an AJAX autocorrect, so it’s very fast.


  • Category Filter in the Edit Post section.


  1. Upload categoryfilter.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
