    Hi,
    I am trying to edit Categories (I want emty categories to show as well).
    I edit sidebar_left.php in the theme. Whatever I change in this line nothing changes in the way Categories are displayed:

    <?php wp_list_cats('sort_column=name'); ?>

    I even removed this line - the categores are displayed as if nothing had happened. It is magic.
    I feel that this tag is overriden somewhere, but where?

    WP version: WP 2.3.3 (on localhost).
    Themes I tried: (Structure 1.1.5 от Justin Tadlock, Simplified by JustSkins and some others)
    Thanks.

    Solved. If widgets are used in the left sidebar of the theme then we must edit includes/widgets.php.
    If no widgets used then we go to sidebar_left.php and edit wp_list_cats() params.
