Author Categories

A wrapper of the default 'wp_list_categories' to present an author's menu, when in the author pages.

Known limitations?

To mention some of the things this plugin (in it's current version) won't do for you: * It only works with posts (not pages) * The markup created is directed for the list-type menu (not the drop down version) with simply parenthesis around the post count. * The author is added as a standard GET variable and does not support the SE friendly URLs (although it still works)


This is naturally an extension of the current limitations... * Add some sort of caching mechanism so all the post count calculations are not done on every page re-load * Externalise the menu structure to a template file * Support other versions of the category menu (dropdown, tag cloud...) * Ability to work with any sort of customized URLs
