[fr] Les catégories sur ce blog sont en grand chenit. Je me rends compte qu'à un moment donné, avant que Technorati se mette aux tags, j'ai tenté d'utiliser un certain nombre de mes catégories comme tags. (Non, ce n'est pas la même chose.) Au programme de cet été, donc, probablement, du grand ménage dans les catégories.
Have you noticed how many categories this blog of mine has? Disastrous. When I migrated to Movable Type in 2004, the main thing I was excited about was being able to use multiple categories for my posts. It got a little bit out of hand. Six months later I switched to WordPress and in the process, wrote a plugin to help me tame my categories. I never really finished sorting everything.
Between then and now, Technorati got tagified. I love tags. Tags are great. Tags are not Categories. Did I mention I love tags? Anyway, at some point, before Technorati tagging, I think I tried to use some of my categories as tags. So, my categories are a mess. Plus, the category hierarchy is mid-way between old categories I was trying to clean up and a new structure which is maybe not that well adapted to the current state of my blog (I think I use the same 5-10 categories all the time). So, I need less categories. But I also need to convert some of my categories into tags. See me coming?
Yep, one of the summer projects will be writing a plugin to convert my categories to tags, and (who knows?) maybe re-writing Batch Categories for WordPress 2.0. But not now. No.
