Update failed all the time it says : An error occurred while updating Real Category Management: The package could not be installed. The package contains no files. I made a screenshot but I cant send here any picture.

Thanks for noticing that, Daxvid82. We have fixed the issue just now. The update should work now.

I am sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi, I just bought the plugin, and it shows me this error message

Hey! Apologies for the delayed response. It looks like there is an incomplete installation. Can you please delete the folder wp-content/plugins/real-media-library completely, download the plugin via CodeCanyon again and install it via Plugins > Add new? Regards, Matthew :-)

I purchased “WordPress Real Category Management” but am unable to activate on the website. Only the free version shows up. On the plugin page “License” only activated the free version “Get Pro!” redirects to the purchase page.

Please check out to learn how to switch from the free to the PRO version.

Multiple steps but it works now. A nice feature to add would be a category for all the pages (or posts) that have not been organized into categories.

Thanks for your feature request. We have added it to our backlog but at the moment we cannot promise any ETA for this. Regards, Matthew :-)

Great plugin. Would be even better if it offered breadcrumbs in the post listing area above the table as it’s still easy to get lost.

Thanks for your feedback and feature request. I have taken this on board so that we can implement it in one of the future versions of Real Category Management!

Plugin doesn’t work with my taxonomy . Can you help me please? Also no work with categories.

Hi there! I just replied to your support ticket. Regards, Matthew :-)

Hello. This plugin not working for my categories. Can you help me please?

Hi there! I just replied to your support ticket. Regards, Matthew :-)

Hello, is there possible this style a presentation with this plugin?

My need is menu tree system, and bulk image upload and finally lightbox views.

Hi there! Unfortunately, Real Category Management is only available in your backend and cannot be used on frontend, sorry. Regards, Matthew :-)

Hello – just bought the plugin – when first screen pop up – I input my licvense, and hit the button, then after 3 minutes – ERROR license server for checking the license cannot be reached.

Please check if you use a firewall or security plugin that blocks the access to our license server,

If you have further questions, please open a support ticket at Thank you!

Hi, your plugin can manage tags and divide them into group and also edit them in groups.

Hi there! Unfortunately, RCM can only organize categories and this is the scope of the plugin. Regards, Matthew :-)

Hi, I have created a parent categories and in a second moment i have put under it some subcategories created prevoiusly, and now don’t appear me the parent category on the frontend. I’m talking about the product categories trees. Thanks

Hi there! Thanks for your message. Can you please share a screenshot what you mean exactly? Are the categories you have created still visible in Products > Categories ? Regards, Matthew :-)

When RCM isn’t activated, my categories appear in alphabetical order (and not necessarily in the order I added them; meaning that, I may have added a category starting with an E before I added a category starting with a B, and the list alphabetizes it for me just the same). You can see a screenshot here where EXTINCT comes after BACON as it would alphabetically: When RCM is activated, it reorders the list to the way I added the categories (EXTINCT is now out of order alphabetically). You can see what I mean here: As you can also see, RCM places my parent category BY COUNTRY ahead of the parent category BOOKS. I added the BOOKS categories first, then the BY COUNTRY, so RCM displays them in that order and not alphabetically.

When I’ve used the REARRANGE tool while in the POSTS list (RCM active), it doesn’t keep the rearrangement in alphabetical order (which is the order I rearrange the categories): Also, in the category panel in my single post admin, categories are in alphabetical order when RCM isn’t activated: But are not in alphabetical order when RCM is active: So is there a way to have RCM list my categories in alphabetical order? I will be adding categories as time goes on, and I want RCM to keep them categorized by alphabet, not date or ID, so I don’t have to.

Thank you.

Hi again! Can you please contact us via, so we can have a look at your individual case on your site? Regards, Matthew :-)

Will do thank you, Matthew!

Any way to make this work on edit pages, products and so on, it would be helpful to at the very least see the category tree as an option. Thanks again…

Hi again! Thanks for your words. I will let you know via this section when the feature is available. Regards, Matthew :-)

How this request going, I really need a way to display a tree, even if it’s a hacky way, sometime you start out hacking then then learn to create a better solution as time passes. Plus I think hack or not, many will love that added feature. Which is something that really should be standard. Thanks so much and keep up the great work. (o:

Hi again! Unfortunately we had not yet time to have a look at this as we are working on a big update of one of our other plugins (Real Cookie Banner). Sorry! Regards, Matthew :-)

Thank you.

Hi. I have more than 900 categories and have spent hours ordering them under POSTS using the Rearrange Feature. On refresh, the order gets out of whack again. I simply want the categories (and their subcategories) ordered alphabetically the way they appear in my CATEGORIES list when REAL CATEGORY MANAGEMENT is disabled. When I deactivate the plugin, my categories revert to their alphabetical listing, not necessarily the way I added categories when creating them. Can this be fixed somehow? Thank you.

Hi Matthew,

Any thoughts about this? I have three licenses for this plugin and hope to use it alongside the other plugins I have in place.

Thank you.

Hello again? Anyone there?

Hi again! Apologies for the delayed response (was on vacation). I will reply to your other comment. Regards, Matthew :-)


1. Can you choose which folder to add a post to when creating the post on the new post entry screen

2. Can you restrict roles from being able to edit and create folders but still let them drag drop?

3. When viewing all posts, can you add a label next to post title to say which folder it belongs to??


Hi waynep16,

thanks for your questions.

1. Yes. We use standard WordPress taxonomies. Therefore, you find the category chooser also in the “Create post” page.

2. Unfortunately, this is not possible because of a very fuzzy permission management of the WordPress core. That also applies to our plugin Real Media Library, for which we explained the issue in more detail:

3. Real Category Library allows you to use folders, but not labels. You can choose the folder that you want to open in the left sidebar. After clicking on it, in the table of posts, you will only see the posts that are assigned to these folders.

Best regards,


When using the reorder feature, how do you select and move multiple entries at the same time?

Hi Perce2,

in the table, where you find your content, you can select a checkbox for each row. Just select the rows/items that you want to move and then move it by drag and drop.

Best regards,


Hi! Is there a way to restrict certain wp roles to create, delete, move and rename categories? This role should only see the category tree and manage blogs to each category, but can’t apply any change. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi sitemaster,

Unfortunately, the WordPress core does not provide any capabilities for this. Therefore, it is not possible to implement this feature. You can read more about the capabilities and limitations at
