List Sub-Categories on Category Page

  • Hi! I have changed my category pages to category landing pages by using the Category Page plugin. Simply put my category pages now have content on each page (as opposed to a list of articles in that category).

    I am currently using a category specific loop (loop_category.php) to list other existing articles in the chosen category below the content on the category page as “Related Articles”, but would also like to be able to list existing sub-categories of the chosen category as well but am not quite sure hot to. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    My existing code to show posts belonging to the chosen category:

    <?php
    	/* Check if there are posts */
    	if ( have_posts() ) {
    		/* Post index for semantic classes */
    		$post_index = 1;
    ?>
    
    	<?php // tr - the following 3 lines list only category posts and exclude sub-category posts
    
    $cat = intval( get_query_var('cat') ); ?>
    
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php if ( in_category($cat) ) { ?>
