It is possible to display categories inside the Edit Entry publish tab with EE3, to facilitate the use of publishing ?

Does an add-on exist to display the categories on this first tab ?

Yes of course it is possible. For that you just have to go into layouts of respected Channel. And then drag and drop the categories under Publish tab.Screenshot of edit entry

  • Thanks for the tips, but it's not working for me. Using Version Chrome 63.0.3239.84 (64-bit), and EE 3.5.12. I can drag the Categories tab on the Edit form Layout page under the Publish tab, but once dragged, nothing happens. Unfortunately the Categories not appears inside the Publish tab.

    Ohh dear EE 3.5.12 is the buggy version. You should use EE 3.5.11. Dec 14, 2017 at 19:03
  • Thanks for the information, I will try to update to EE 3.5.13, and soon EE4........... come back to 3.5.12 could give me some headaches........ Thanks again for your tips, it's a nice solution. It is documented in the EE 3 documentation? Happy Xmas !!!! I'm jealous it works for you and not for me ;)
