This is a quick look at the new category features in Joomla 1.6.


The new category manager for content (articles, web links, newsfeeds, etc) combines the 2-level section-category system from Joomla 1.5 into a single, nested tree. The category tree can also be any depth (including no categories or just one level of categories).
