Well that thread title is a mouthful I've been using this article as a reference for setting up a categories hierarchy in MySQL. Maybe I'm not as bright as other but I've been having a bit of trouble getting my head around it. So far I can add categories no worries, that part works great but that's as far as the article goes

I've had a play and I can figure out how to delete a base node but how do I go about deleting a higher up category and taking all of it's subcategories with it? And what about moving categories and subcats around while keeping structure? I would rather this method as once I learn how to use it properly it seems to be much more powerful than the other method mentioned in the article I ust can't seem to get my head around it.

Does anyone have any answers to my questions or maybe some resources that'll help me find the answers on my own?
