New Widget for Sub Categories

My new Sub Categories widget is now available from the WordPress plugin directory.  Yes there are others widgets that list sub categories but none that had the features I wanted – so I wrote a new one.

These are the main features:

  • Coded in the new widget class
  • Can add as many widgets as you like
  • Can select from parents that have no posts
  • Can use the parent category name as the title or fill in something different
  • Can link the title to the parent category or not
  • Option to show the number of posts in each sub – category if you like
  • Option to exclude empty sub-categories from the list.

All in all a handy little widget if your site categorizes content in this way.

You can see it working on this site in the footer – two widgets displaying posts for plugins and themes.  Here I’ve included all sub-categories, posts counts, used the parent category as the title but not linked to that category.

Let me know how you like it and if you’d like any features added.
