Admin Collapse/Expand Product Categories
when we have a large number of categories in the back-end it would be great to have folding categories, categories that collapse/expand or accordion style. for the product categories page.
This is a problem for a couple of reasons. The first issue is by default you hide pagination values under screen options which really is a horrible place fore it. Screen options should really be reserved for things people barely use, not something use full like how many categories should we see at once.
Even with a all the categories visible, when you have categories with lost of subcategories, it doesn't instill a lot of faith in the end user that where they want to place that category is it when the object move sub categories, like you could place the parent in the same location as the subcategories your trying to move through. Also, when you have a lot you have to scroll the page up and down while holding onto the object with a click, which is challenging for some users. If you need to rearrange categories, collapsing the root categories in the admin is a must so you can easily rearrange the parents.
If anyone figures this out, please let me know, we have several thousands of products since we own a video game store that sells everything from pre-atari to new releases it is not only annoying and difficult to edit items in categories, but to also rearrange the categories since woocommerce does alphabetical by default. We used to use Bigcommerce, but recently moved to Woocommerce due to it being more open source.
Please PLEASE add this! We have 200+ part categories (auto parts) and scrolling through all of them every time is a nightmare!
Us, too! We are just starting but will have thousands of categories. Need current drag/drop functionality. Don't want to write it myself.
