    Seems to me if you're going to imply a category roll-up structure that selecting a "child entry" ought to necessarily select any parent.

    Here's what I've figured out in answer to my own question... If the child category is selected and the parent is not, the entry will show up within the entries shown by showing the parent.
    However...
    If there are no entries listed directly under the parent, neither parent nor child categories show up on the category lists whatsoever.

    Perhaps the developers can make that clearer. When the user selects the child category in the "Write" section of the administration interface, the parent category's check box appears to be checked too. When the user make a posting that belongs to both the parent and child category, only the child category is taken into consideration. That'll be clearer for the user in my humble opinion. :)

    Regardless though the "bug" of neither parent nor child being visible if the parent has no checked entries needs to be fixed.
