I'm using dropdown_cats in my sidebar, and it works fine, save for one problem: It only works from the main url. If I'm on any pages with a nice permalink, it tacks the cat_ID onto the end of that url and just returns me to the same page.. Example:
"www.foo.com/cat=10" works fine, but if I'm at "www.foo.com/category/bar/" it tacks "cat=10" onto the end of the permalink, which of course doesn't work.
Any ideas how to fix this?
Oh also- I thought the default behavior was for dropdown_cats was to show the category name of the category you're currently viewing, but this doesn't seem to work either. The Codex says "Sets the default selected category ID number. Defaults to current category."..or am I misunderstanding that?
