Feedback/suggestion: categories

  1. While composing a new post a difficulty I constantly face is to choose 'categories' from the dropdown menu, it's hectic since my dropdown menu is too long. Please try providing a feature like you have for adding tags, like on clicking 'Choose from the most used tags' - tags are readily visible and clickable rather than dropdown menu which is easy for rapid and effective visual identification of tags. So kindly think of making the category adding in tag adding way (as written above), at least please keep it optional for those who find the dropdown category menu hectic.

    Another suggestion, not everyone has time and neither everyone are expert in blogging- thinking them in mind please add this support section to dash board or some other places so that its easier to get this support page.
    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is drsumantasaha.wordpress.com.

  2. The Support documents are readily available.
    When you come to this forum you should see "Support" as a menu choice on top, just below your admin bar. Here is the link, and remember the support section has a search bar; and it can be bookmarked in your browser:
    http://support.wordpress.com/

    If you are on your dashboard:
    http://drsumantasaha.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php
    then there is a link to "help" on the top right of your screen. There is a menu to "get help."

  3. Thanks 1Tess for info about support finding.
    Please note the request I made in the first half of my query in regard to 'categories'. Thanks.

  4. As for your question about categories, you may want to consider the differences between categories and tags:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories-vs-tags/
    Essentially categories organize your blog, and tags are for a wide variety of descriptions of posts.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/tags/

    Your categories are not acting like major topics which will then organize tags together into sub-topics but you can convert them:

  5. Thanks. I got solved the issue.
