    Need some help. I have a website that I want to put in subcategories. Here a example.
    Lets say my category is Flowers.

    So next to it I would like a drop down area that shows. Flowers – about
    planting
    care
    harvest.

    Is there anyone out there that can help me.. Please. I am a newbie to all of this.

    I have the same question. My blog is http://amandahbjones.wordpress.com.

    I’ve already made several categories be children of another category, but it doesn’t show any differentiation in the display. Thanks if you can help!

    Until you assign a category and/or subcategory to a post and publish that post there is no data for the widget to display. Could that be your problem?

    If that’s not the problem, then go to Appearance>Widgets, open the Categories widget, tick “Show hierarchy”, Save.

    Hmm. I’m actually retroactively changing my categories. Well, thanks for the fast response! I also found this support page which seems most relevant; I’m about to try it out.

    Yes that’s the link I posted above. I think you will find the TV link is a useful one as well.
