sub categories (expandable) (5 posts)

    Hi -I am looking for a way to make a category expandable into sub categories.

    I would like to have a main parent category, for instance "Cancer" with a small arrow icon next to it (like the one next to "accessories" under all programs in the start menu of Microsoft)that when the parent category (with the arrow) is elected/scrolled over the auto generated, hidden child (sub categories) display/drop down... Any ideas? Even a clickable parent category that indicates a drop down menu would suffice. Though I would prefer the auto generated sub category to display when the parent category is selected... like the "accessories" feature (in MS)does mentioned above.

    Thanks in advance! BB

    Have you taken a look at these plugins to see if one suits your needs?

    HandySolo - I checked out the link you so kindly provided - thanks! While it is close to what I'm looking for, it lacks the auto generated subcategory display feature I was seeking/hoping for... You have to click on the parent category and get redirected to view any/all subdirectories... I would prefer the "auto generated sub category to display when the parent category is selected ... like the "accessories" feature (in MS) does in the start menu under all programs."

    The multiple page clicks are an annoying detour... I would like the ability to select the relevant hidden subcategory while still at the homepage/same page I was at already - that is before being redirected...

    While this plug-in hints that there are in fact other subcategories (via a number following the named parent category) you can't access them from there...

    thanks, BB
