Moving Categories ?

Hi,

i have some old categories which i want to move to another category as a "subcategory". My question is, how can i move a category into another so that it didn't show up twice? I mean in the "old place" and in the new category ? Because i read something about "Virtual Categories". That means that in fact i  won't "touch" the old category with copy & paste..i just connect it where it is with the new one, right? And it won't show up twice?
Could someone tell me if I am right...and/or tell me how to do exactly ?
Thx in advance,

Regards.

Re: Moving Categories ?

Don't move it! Don't copy it!


The logic is:

1 - Link all pictures to a virtual category.
2 - "Hide" the old category.


Only virtual categories can be moved.

Moving a directory has many consequences like loss of description, tags, comments, stats...

Linking all the pictures: Manage your category and look for "Associate pictures..."
You have several ways to do it.

Hiding a category: Make it private and removing all access.

Removing access from a category means pictures cannot be accessed by this category but they could be by another one (the virtual category, where all the images are linked).


Anyway I am working on a plugin to virtualize your old categories.
