Support » Fixing WordPress » Display Sub-Categories On Single.php

  • I have a series of categories as follows:


    Each of those have sub-categories… such as under “Books” there is…

    Books on Tape/CD
    Business & Finance

    I’m using the following code to display a list of sub-categories of the main category on the sidebar.

    So, in other words, when you go to “Books” the sidebar shows the sub-categories listed above. That is done with this code…

    // in category template, get child cats and posts
    $cat = get_query_var('cat');
      'child_of' => $cat,
      'hide_empty' => 0,
      'orderby' => name,
      'style' => none,
      'title_li' => '',

    When you click on a specific book, however, and are taken to the “single” page for that entry, it displays ALL of the categories on the sidebar.

    I want to display only the sub-categories of the main category of which you are under.

    So, if you click on a single book, it shows the sub-categories of the “Books” category, and so on.
