This extension is WONDERFUL and does exactly what I need - add many categories to a single article. It works perfectly! The developer is terrific - he helped me edit the php file for my template so that all the categories are now shown. For my site, if I could only have one extension, this would be it - I can't live without it! Kudos to the developer!!

Just perfect! Simple and easy, does what it says, saving a lot of time and trouble:)
Well done, this should be included in the Joomla version.

I really appreciate the usefulness of the extension but also the fact that the developer has developed many different versions depending on your joomla version installed. A great job, congratulations!

Realy needed this extension on my site. It worked first time and did what it said.
Had I small problem with another extension in conjunction with this one that did not work correctly and Pavel had a look and fixed the other extension problem for me.
That is what I call fantastic support.
Would recommend this extension to anyone that wants to use Multiple Categories.

I have used CW Multicategories on multiple web sites for at least a year now and it's absolutely invaluable if you have content that goes into several categories and menus on your site.

Installation and operation is hassle free and intuitive. Improvements are added on a regular basis and the developer is open for suggestions.

I had some issues with one of the updates and found that the support from the developer was both quick and helpful.

Thanks for a very, very useful component. Top marks from me.

The multi category feature is a must have feature for such a big CMS - this extension provides it and it simply it does what it promises! THX to the developpers for the good work!

One thing - after updating Joomla to 2.5.17 the component was inactive. A quick reinstall solved the problem. Don't know if this is a problem of the component

Can't believe Joomla 3.2 doesn't have the functionality that this great extension provides. Installation and set up was easy but it didn't work with my themeforest template at first. I emailed the developer CW multicategory and he made a small modification to my template and now everything works great. Brilliant extension and backed-up with first class support. Well worth the investment. Cheers

It does exactly that, what it should. :)

And if you have any problem, the support is really helpful, nice and quick!

Does exactly what it says and allows you to very easily add your articles to multiple categories. Nothing to configure or hammer into place, it just works.

Support was quick and solved any issues right away. I had two problems with the extension (one with sub-category article display in parent categories, another with user group permissions in the front end editor), both of which Pavel solved very quickly and required nothing of me but to install the patched component.

Definitely recommended!

A very handy extension. Had a few compatibility issues on installing it, but the developer went above and beyond to sort them out for me.

I was duplicating articles and then forgetting to change all the copies when they needed updating. This extension gets round that problem by allowing one copy of an article to be shown in multiple categories.
The only thing you have to remember is that there is only one article and therefore there is only one Article Ordering number so if you rely on this to sequence your articles in the categories you will have to think carefully about what to number the article in its base category.
This didn't prove a great problem for me and I think the extension is a real must have!
Great support as well when needed.

Multi categorization is a must have and this component does the job.
But I couldn't find a way to order my articles, in the different categories.

I needed an extension that suited a directory structure of articles, without having to duplicate content. It was also important to work well with other extensions - this one suited best. Other reviews gave me the confidence to purchase. I had one small issue with my template, Pavel attended to this specific 'tweak' in a flash. Recommended.
