New Category Answered

Hi,


I'd like another category to be added to the publish page. It should be an 'other' category which lets you put you're own category name.

I'd like to know if this is possible. If not, then a few more categories added would also be fine, such as Life Hacks, and in their, as subcategories : Kitchen, Home, Outdoor, Tech etc.

Thank You



Cheerio!

I second that but since I know what would happen I suggest a different approach.
I tried to find a energy section for example as the sub category under "technology" with no luck.
Somewhere on this site should be a question and posting section for energy related stuff.

For Ibles that (as the author thinks) won't fit into any existing category I moderated category would be nice.
Of course outside public view.
The author can select "Other" with a popup or similar reminding him of the moderation and that it will take a few days to publish, and the great team here can decide wether it fits into an existing category or should be posted in a new one as the author suggested.
IMHO this would be beneficial for the site as it encourages other people to create new things we don't have yet.

I'm not sure about the part where "this would be beneficial for the site as it encourages other people to create new things we don't have yet." I don't normally make sure that there's a category for my project before starting a new Instructable...
