The Category Field

The Category field is used for assigning entries to one or more categories in the entry form. It's a mandatory field for every section, as every entry must be assigned to at least one category. There are five category field methods available. The most common is the SigsiuTree, which provides all categories within a tree, while the categories from sub-categories are loaded first in the sub-category is opened. So it is the right choice for a big amount of categories. Additional methods are a single select list, a multiple select list, a populated list and the possibility to assign an entry to a fixed category without having the author to select a category in the entry form.
One category field is created automatically when creating a new section, but you can add more category fields to it.
