The categories I’m changing the hierarchy for are products. I successfully did the same thing in the previous days, now it won’t let me and not sure what is different.

I want to move a number of categories underneath a parent category.

Hi. Has the plugin now been updated? Many thanks

Hello there! Yes, you can download newest version. Sorry for the late response. Best regards, Matthew :)

No problems… Thanks for updating!

I wonder if this plugin works with pages or is it just posts?.

If it works, will it affect / change the url structure for my pages?

Example : domain.com/mypage/ changed to domain.com/category/mypage/

Best Regards

Hello there! Sorry for the late answer… No, it does not change the URLs automatically. It simply helps you to organize the categories. What happens in your current installation when you change the category of a post? It also works for pages, that means it adds categories to pages. Best regards, Matthew :)

Great product man!

This is a great plugin. However, I have a lot of categories, subcategories, sub-subcategories, etc. and I am having problems viewing the hierarchy of categories that were created since I added the plugin. This is making it difficult to organize my menu because some of my categories have the same name and I can’t see which main category they are in.

Hello there! What version are you using and can you send a little screenshot what you mean to support@matthias-web.com? Best regards, Matthew :)

Hi, I buyed the category management plugin. Unfortunately I can’t install it. It says “there was no functionable plugin found”. I just downloaded the ZIP file from Envanto to my MAC and tried to install as usual in Wordpress (newest version, also newest version of the X Theme).

Thank you for your help Kind regards Reto

Hello there! Just unzip the downloaded zip and you will find the real-media-library.zip file which is installable. Best regards, Matthew :)

Does your real category management plugin also DISPLAY the categories? My theme developer didn’t include any sort of blog page and I don’t know how to call the categories to a page for display…. Thank you.

Hello there! What do you mean exactly? Best regards, Matthew :-)

I simply mean how do you get the categories to show on a page? Rather then all my posts on a page in chronological order, I want to show the categories, maybe with some headlines under each topic, so users can click to see all the headlines in that topic or click directly into a post from the headline. There’s a list categories plugin but it isn’t formatted at all and seems limited in that way, cumbersome. If I remember correctly, your plugin does a nice job of showing blogs in, say a grid format… the title, a bit of the first sentence, etc, but it doesn’t just list the categories either. I don’t understand why… should have just the categories a the top, then a grid (if you want a grid) below, preferably you could have that grid be whatever topic you’ve clicked on so there’s always all the topics at the top. Does that make any more sense? Maybe I’m missing something obvious about your plugin or wordpress. My template really doesn’t have space for a side navigation widget though, so that usual method is out….

Hello there again! Unfortenely, Real Cateegory Management plugin has no feature show categories on frontend. But if you use another plugin to show categories on frontend the order (which you have created with drag&drop) is respected. Regards, Matthew :)

Hello Pre sale question

i like your plugin and i will buy it for woocommerce, my question is: does your plugin works for creating new products?

i have a massive category tree and it is very difficult to select the category when i’m creating a new product.


Hello there. What do you mean exactly? Best regards, Matthew :)

hi, we have your WordPress Real Media Library already but i just stumbled upon this other plugin. Is there a reason why we would like to have this one as well? :) (what does it do that the other one doesn’t)

Hello there! Thanks for your interest. RCM (Real Category Management) primary allows you to organize all your categories in the backend as tree on left side except media library. Real Media Library is similar but adds a category tree to the media library and many other stuff which is not needed for normal categories (like posts). Best regards, Matthew :-)
