Post’s Categories in Sidebar

Description

This plugin was created to show the categories for a single post in the sidebar.

The categories will be displayed in an unordered list.

You can choose the title for the widget in the sidebar if you wish.

If you’re using the plugin, please drop the link to your blog here.

Example:

<li id="cz_post_cat-3" class="widget-container widget_cz_post_cat">
    <h3 class="widget-title">Topics</h3>
    <div class="cz-post-cats">
        <ul class="cz-cat-ul">
            <li class="cz-cat-li"><a href="http://xxx.xxx.xxx/topic/facebook/">Facebook</a></li>
            <li class="cz-cat-li"><a href="http://xxx.xxx.xxx/topic/jobs/">Jobs</a></li>
        </ul>
    </div>
</li>

It uses the is_single() query in php so that it ONLY shows up on single posts. Not pages.
