assign multiple categories to article
C'mon guys, even Wordpress can do this! :) But seriously, it would allow articles to appear in, uh, multiple categories. For instance, an article on "Green computing" could be categorised under "computing" and "environment" and displayed along with other articles on either subject by the use of relevant category menu items.
I realise you can do this to an extent with tags, but that's a kludge; categories are a much better way.
the ability to add one article under several categories
this is a very useful feature.
Unlimited sub category in categories
still no free versions ?
@Willem: Tags *are* multi-assignable categories. You just have to build your menu system on tags instead of categories.
The usual categories are like directories/folders in your file system.

The upcoming TAG feature in Joomla 3.1/3.2 is super great!!! But, it does not solve the multi-category issue.
For instance my website - news.caribseek.com - has as categories Caribbean Islands and the menu sytem is based on these categories. Many times we have the need to be able to assign more than one category to a news item, for instance in the case of a baseball match between Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
If we have a news item in one category (say Curaçao), and with Aruba and Puerto Rico as tags, than the news item will ONLY appear under Curaçao when selected in the menu system and NOT under Aruba or Puerto Rico when they are selected in the menu system because the menu system is based on categories.
Categories and Tags are different concepts, and having both in Joomla! would be excellent!!!
This really shows many of the things that is compalete crap about Joomla. You can not really create anything that is not of poor quality if you are not a web designer etc. Joomla is very simple and poor. It is made for people with no knowledge of web development that creates crapy web sites. It is better to save money and give and buy a pro web site. I sick and tired of these problems with Joomla. A multiple category is so god them basic, and should be in every CMS-system. I think Wordpress and Drupal is probably better. They have these simple functions.
By the way, the extension Multicategories is not good at all. It works badly and basicly when ever the f*ck it wants.
i want that joomla has a features that access us to publish some modules only on the read more part of com_content it is very important to me and all of my other friends that use Joomla cms
Merely wanna input on few general things, The website pattern is perfect, the content is very superb : D. <a href="http://www.freeblurayplayer.com/">Free Blu-ray Player</a> - Best solution to play Blu-ray Disc/Folder/Info and mainstream videos on Mac and Win.
i've needed this from Joomla for years. Way more the the additional user permissions. Essential for travel and tourism sites where catagorizing with location and activies is needed.
Very useful feature
This missing features is one of the reasons I will probably select another CMS. The feature could be added using an aliasing concept.
Just use an extension: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/structure-a-navigation/multi-categorization/12374
Yes, I don't why.
But it take long time to have this basic feature !
Please! Necessary as the air! This feature is practically everywhere, but for some reason not in Joomla.
Example: catalogs (one film, at least in 2-3 categories)

This is much needed

This is REALLY important functionality! Please add this to the core of Joomla!
Even the most basic website with more than a handful of pages requires this kind of functionality. Without it, you're just using duct tape and bailing wire to cobble something together. All this discussion around security concerns is meaningless since the functionality doesn't exist, and all of the hobbled-together solutions are even MORE insecure.
Please add this soon!!

This was the first thing I was looking for in latest Joomla Edition. Unfortunately - NOT FOUND!!!
This would be a great addition to the functionality of Joomla, please add this soon!
This should be a core Joomla functionnality

I think it is not the place for advertising.

We developed a component for Multicategories for Joomla and K2. We also just recently launched a 3 in 1 Component that lets you assign Modules and Menus from the Article page. Saves us tons of time on big projects.
Is the link for the main Multi-category for Joomla.
I've always dreamed of this. I hope that the Joomla developers can do.
