Displaying Subcategory List on a Category Page (2 posts)

    I know this is probably obvious to many of you, but I can't figure it out exactly. I mean I know of one way to do it, but that way is probably overly complex, and the smart people here probably have solved this many times over.

    I would like to be able to select a parent category (any parent category), and have a page display with some text specific to the parent category, and then a listing of the sub-categories for that parent. Then click on any of sub-categories, and display the usual categories page (Title and excerpt).

    I could certainly hand code this, but that's not dymanic, so if I add a sub-category, I have to remember to update the Parent "page." And I could create a category-ID# template for each category, but I'd rather not do that if someone knows how to handle this without doing it that way.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    bjohnm,

    I am in need of the exact same thing. I grabbed Navid Azimi's List Manager plugin, but essentially, this alleviates having to hand code ul and the subsequent li tags. Too, I am manually inserting the page ID's for the link URL's with this plugin. It's great if you just need one centralized area for managing lists.

    The problem here is that I will be handing this off to people who are not the least bit savvy when it comes to coding or how these things work in general. Hence the need to have something that is dynamic so that they don't have to touch it at all.

    Let me know if you find a solution. I'm scouring anything and everything right now.

    Thanks!
