Suggest Category v2.1.1
I am trying to figure out how to let users suggest a category. I have found a lot of old posts. Has anyone written a plug-in for this, or found an easy way to do it yet? Since I have not found any recent posts I am wondering if this issue has been solved and I just can't find it. Unsure

Did you want them to be able to actually suggest a category, or dynamically create it? If it is the first one...just create a new field called 'desired_category', and then they can enter their desired new category in there. Then when you go to validate the link, you can decide if you want to create that new category.

Hope that helps Tongue

There is more easier solution, if you do not expect too much suggestions daily.
Just install a formmailer script, create a page with a form, and you are ready. Wink
It can be done within 10-15 minutes...

But of course the finest solution is, to be able to validate from the Admin interface, like Andy suggested.
