Collapsing Categories

Adds a widget which uses Javascript to dynamically expand or collapse the set of posts for each category.

Collapsing Categories creates an expandable list of categories and subcategories. It can also expand to show posts. The primary usage is as a widget, but you can also use the code in your theme manually if you wish (see installation instructions)
