Event category dropdown on pages in admin

Hi there,

I want to be able to use the event categories on the normal pages within WordPress and wondered what would be the best way of setting this up?

I want to be able to select a category then use the category slug for a plugin that I have developed for that page. The plugin is for a widget that displays the current categories events which works fine, I just want a better way than using the pages categories as this will be duplicating the event categories that I already have.

I am guessing I either need to create a new plugin or create some functions for my themes functions.php file but would like some pointers if possible?

Thanks

Damian

You could try:

add_action('init','add_categories_to_cpt');
function add_categories_to_cpt(){
    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('espresso_event_categories', 'post');
}
