Prior to 2.1, I set my sidebar to display only categories 2, 3, and 4, each of which has so many children that I don't want them to show in the sidebar. Instead each of these has its own category page (e.g., category-4.php) that lists all the children as links. (Category 1 was uncategorized, so I excluded it completely.) The old code:
<?php wp_list_cats('exclude=1&children=0'); ?>
With 2.1, I find that wp_list_cats is deprecated. I'm trying to get the same effect with wp_list_categories but am coming up short.
displays the children of categories 2, 3, and 4 but not the categories themselves.
displays the parents (2, 3, 4) and the children.
(which leaves out 'hierarchical') also displays both parents and children.
I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious, but as you can see it's not obvious to me.
