1. Edit Category - FRONTEND

How about a "Edit Category" button near "Submit a new entry"?
By clickin on that button, you could edit the category options like :

    title
    description
    icon
    enable comments
    enable ratings

It would save admin from going back to administration, pages, structures, cat options :-)

2. Sorting Options included in Category Options

Instead of going to "Set a default sorting order for the categories" and then looking for a category you need to edit, wouldn't it be easier for everyone to include "Order: Title Ascending"
in "Options" for category.

So it would look like:

Code :  	
Path : 	
Title : 	
Description : 	
Icon (URL) : 	
Group : 	
Template mode : 	Default
Same as
Same as the parent category
Enable comments : 	Yes No
Enable ratings : 	Yes No
Check the counters : 	Resync
Order by: Title Ascending

What do you think?

It's a nice idea for a plugin. I think it will be made eventually, together with category add from frontend.

1st idea could be the plugin, but second should be included by default.
