    Howdy,

    I love WordPress! I would like to know how to have my category tree open when the page loads (ie the user does not need to click to expand to show all of the child categories-

    I am using a Wiki theme and the url is here . If anyone can think of any other cool plugins let me know! Also would anyone know how I can stick a list of external links under this tree?

    Cheers!!

    Leon ๐Ÿ˜€

  • P.S. does anyone know if there is a Yahoo Answers type plugin where users can submit their questions to be answered? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m worried I may be asking too much!

    The category tree is ยซclosedยป by the CSS. Edit your themes style.css, and change:

    #navigation ul {
    	display: none;
    	border-left: 1px solid #d0d0d0;
    	margin-left: 15px;
    }

    to:

    #navigation ul {
    	border-left: 1px solid #d0d0d0;
    	margin-left: 15px;
    }

    If your theme supports widgets, you can probably add a Blogroll-widget beneath the Category-widget. Check Apperance > Widgets in your WP-admin.

    Thank you!- that is really helpful ๐Ÿ™‚ Unfortunately, the theme does not support Widgets, I presume it would be very difficult to get them working?

    If your theme doesn’t support widgets, you probably want to edit the sidebar.php. Find the wp_list_categories, and below it, use wp_list_bookmarks.

    fantastic thanks!!!

    Hi, just given it a go- love it! I really appreciate your help, these kind of things drive me crazy- the fact that someone can help me out like this is amazing ๐Ÿ˜€
