Better taxonomy term selection in Drupal

This page on shows how to use checkboxes and option boxes instead of the drop-down selectors for taxonomy terms when submitting content.

It involves modifying the node edit form using hook_form_alter. According to the page author, it was originally created by merlinofchaos.

I plan on using this technique on some of my other sites, where the users have to suffer with large selection boxes for various taxonomy terms.

Merlinofchaos' post describing an improved version.

New module for this

Just to let you know that there is a new module that handles all this for you:

Too bad it's Drupal 5 only at present

Nice module, I wish there was a 4.7 back-port.
