Misiek Page Category


Plugin allows you to create categories for pages and display them as a widget.

All updates available in changlog section


version 2.1

  • I have noticed that upgrade from 2.0 to 2.1 made Uncategorized category hidden, then went to categories page and edited one of the category already created, that fixed the problem.
    Don’t see the relations with that action and not sure why that happend.

Please notify me if you will notice that issue !!!


  • Option under Pages section
  • Adding/List of Categories
  • Add Widget
  • Display Widget
  • List of Categories on "Add New" page
  • Add Widget ( view in 2.8.x WP version ), more options in plugin 2.1 version.


  1. Upload misiek-page-category folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Manage albums from administration menu..

In order to upgrade to 2.1 version you must reinstall the plugin by simply clicking uninstall and install again

This process should be not necessary if you use auto upgrade. But if something will go wrong please uninstall and the install again.

Uninstallation will not remove your categories created before but just in case please make a backup of your database before any upgrade.


How can I display all or individual categories in a page not in the widget ?

In order to do it you need to enable php in your page body by exex-php plugin, then simply use below function:

mpc_widget_categories($title, $total, $expend, $category_names, $category_ids);

$title variable displays title name of page category and must be false or string.

$total variable, if set true it displays total pages in (n) next to the category name. Must be true or false.

$extend variable if set true, you won’t see a links under categories (added this for users request, you always should set false here), must be true or false.

$category_names variable must be an array with your pages names, correct format is:

array(‘Some Name’, ‘Another Name’);

$category_ids variable must be an array with your pages id’s, correct format is:

array(1, 2);

version 2.1 allow more options

mpc_widget_categories($title, $total, $expend, $category_names, $category_ids, $desc, $catpages_in_uncat)

$desc variable , if set to true the description under category name will be displayed

$catpages_in_uncat variable, if set to true, the pages belongs to the categories will be displayed under Uncategorized category.
