  • I am curious what he easiest way to create a category list page. The goal is to remove the categories from my side column and create a nav item called categories that takes users to a page that gives a list of the categories.

  • Hi,

    Try using:

    <?php list_cats(); ?>

    Put it on the page where you want the links to appear.

    I am aware of the list_cats, but what kind of page would I use? I mean I guess I could just create my own new page manually with all the appropriate database connections. Is that the best way though?

    Nah, that’s the hard way!

    Make a new Page template instead. See Pages for more info… in fact, there’s a section in there that might be just what you’re after.

    If you don’t take the example, just make a new Page Template and add the call to wp_list_cats to it.
    Now, in WordPress, create a new Page. Title it “Archives” and select your new Page Template. No need to add text.


    I can’t seem to create a new page template at all – for some reason, I’m missing a ‘page options’ box… it should be under the ‘page content’ box, right? Or am I missing something?
