I thought this plugin would be simple to install and use. However, even with the help of the developers making changes (including CSS) through my WordPress admin panel, it fails to load properly on mobile. I had spent several hours trying to get it to work, even with their help and I eventually uninstalled it and went with another solution. I would recommend this plugin instead as even the free version gave me the functionality that this one did and actually worked. https://wordpress.org/plugins/iks-menu/

I had some issues with the plugin, one of which was related to caching which fixed itself and the second was with sub-categories showing at the bottom of the listed categories. Asking for help got the answer back on the sub-category problem very quickly: Sub Categories will appear at the end of all category listings. To get them to list in line, they must be top level categories. Knowing that, we can resolve the problem. One minus is the panel where categories are listed for selection is quite small. If you have a long list of categories, finding and selecting the ones you want is a little problematic. Having a user adjustable display panel would resolve this issue nicely. Response was great and fast, plugin works like a charm. Recommended.

With my theme your widget displays categories in a different type face from the general layout typeface and size, and most distracting a non-transparent background so that nothing blends in. Surely an anomaly.
