  • Category/taxonomy metabox on the post edit screen
  • Category/terms listing page which mixes up parent and child terms on the same page

and very complex to use. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could re-arrange these sections to a way that helps improve your UI experience? This plugin comes with very nice solution for this whole.
