This Widget lists the sub-categories for a given category.

Sometimes when you divide up your WordPress content into categories it all ends up in sub-categories of one or two main categories that don't have any content themselves.

With the widget you can add a list of sub-categories even if the parent doesn't have posts.

You can display and filter sub-categories in various ways:

  • Use the parent category as the widget title
  • Show post counts in bracket next to the name
  • Hide empty sub-categories
  • Add a link to the parent category to the widget title
  • Show the full sub-category tree so it include sub-sub categories and so on as well
  • Display the list as dropdown rather than as links
  • Use the first category of the current post as the parent
  • Exclude one or more sub-categories from the list
  • List the categories in reverse order
