Joomla 1.7 – New Category Manager Batch Processing

Joomla 1.7New Feature Category Manager Batch Processing

Now you can easily make multiple categories nested without having to move them one by one.  With the new Joomla 1.7 Category Manager Batch processing feature you can select multiple categories and make them either a parent to child to another category easily.  There are 2 Category Manager batch processing features:

1.  Batch change access level

2.  Batch Category for Move/Copy

Below are screenshots of the Joomla 1.7 Category Manager Batch Processing New Feature:

1.  Batch Access level – If you have multiple categories that you want to change their access level ie, allow only registered users to see articles in a category –  You can select multiple categories and choose “Registered”.  Then click on “Process” button.

After you are done processing the batch categories, you will see a confirmation message saying:
