by default.

Reviews

Works as expeced.

Some actions on my posts are triggered with use the parent categories (if in_category() …). I forgot to set the parent category so many times, but that’s over now… 🙂

Excellent

Helps keep our users/authors in line. Does exactly what it needs to do by highlighting the parent category when selecting a child. Thanks!
