Automatic Joomla Categories!
** New V1.2 - Easily add existing sections& Customise category names **
At the push of a button you can create a new category inside your specified sections, named “Month Year” e.g. March 2010 or whatever you like. A great time saver if you have a blog or news style website with lots of sections that all have categories based on the month for example.
If you have an article based site with alot of sections and categories, it can take a long time to make new categories inside each section manually, instead use "Auto Cats". It can also be used to quickly create new sections, and you have full control over the name format of the categories, (default is Month-Year, but you can customise this)
How to use:
Install, then select your "article" categories e.g. "Blog, News", click save, the "Blog" & "News" sections will be added to the "Active List".
Click "Make Categories" and categories are instantly created for those sections in your desired format i.e. March 2010.
