I saw "categories" show up briefly in the sidebar while editing a page, but then it went away. I was unable to get it back. Another similar plug-in did work for me. Also, plug-in assumes that all plug-ins are in folders. They don't have to be and mine crashed the plug-in (simple code work-around).

We have a site that has over 60 pages and covers at least 8 categories. We were going crazy trying to find pages until I finally found this one. It works simply, does exactly what you want it to and made managing this hydra we have much easier. Well done.

I use the free Elementor Page Builder and this plug-in makes it so easy to add categories to pages. Highly recommend this.

The 1.0 version of this plugin works well for me. It's simple and effective. I love being able to attach categories to pages, or posts. Other people have complained that a page category is in the same context as a post category of the same name, but personally I think this is great. If you want your page categories to be different than post categories, then just name them differently. Otherwise, the ability to have them the same is a bonus. You can look at a category listing and it gives you everything, whether they are pages or posts. The 1.1 version of the plugin, in order to avoid interfering with other plugins, basically disabled this plugin's functionality on the main site for any admin user. This was a bad "fix" to make, especially without telling anyone in the readme or change log. It is basically purposefully breaking the way the site looks to the admin user. -1 star for this poor update that I had to undo.
