    Helo, I am using this shortcode
    [mctagmap columns="3" show_categories="yes" child_of="17" hide="yes" num_show="3" more="more »" toggle="« less" show_empty="yes" name_divider="|" descriptions="yes" width="170" manual="" basic ="no" basic_heading="no"]

    but in result, still all of the categories are listed, not the child of category id 17.
    Is there something wrong?
    Thanks

    Interesting. I used your code, using my category of course and, I am not seeing the issue.

    Can you post a link to the page you are having issues on?

    i worked it on from localhost using mamp.
    thing is, i had inserted those categories using another plugin Batch Category Import and having issues for Missing Categories.

    Looking at your screen shot, yeah, looks like you're missing 15 categories. I'll assume that's an issue with your other plugin. On your screen shot, is "Cuisine" category "17" ? If not, do any child categories of category "17" have any posts?

    It looks like the child_of won't show a category if that category has no posts in it. So the "show_empty" option isn't in effect.

    I'll look into fixing that. In the mean time can you make a test post in your selected child category and tell me if the category heading shows up?

    Thanks

    Hi there,
    so, I finally started fresh wordpress install. It seems that Batch Category Import plugin has problem on its own to cause that hidden category list.

    I use other plugin called WPEssence Bulk Categories + WCK Custom Taxonomy.
    One tricky part I learn was case sensitive for the custom tax I created.
    [mctagmap columns="3" taxonomy="Cuisine" show_categories="yes" hide="yes" num_show="3" more="more »" toggle="« less" show_empty="yes" name_divider="|" descriptions="yes" width="170" manual="" basic ="no" basic_heading="no"]

    so yea, your plugin actually works as it is :)

    Thanks
