    HI Creativepinkbutterfly.

    Please post a link to the location where is not showing up and the options you are using in the widget. A screenshot of the widget will work just fine.

    That will give me a much better idea of what the issue is.

    Thank you


    It wont show on my blog: creativepinkbutterfly.com

    The only option I have checked is “Include Parent Even With No Children” and the res tis unchecked or blank…

    Hi Creativepinkbutterfly,

    With those options checked the menu will only show up on category pages. I tried to verify if it was working or not, however I received the following error on your site

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=' in /home/content/81/11126581/html/wp-content/themes/forever/category.php on line 17

    Looks like you have a PHP error in your theme’s category.php file.

    If you would like this to show up on blog post pages you may check the options in the widget. If you are trying to get this to show up on all pages, you will either have to use the built in filters or use the categories widget which is built into WordPress.

    Hope this helps.


    I think I fixed the line 17 problem..

    I was lead to this widget from a site where they said this would be a option for only showing parent categories.. but if this is not the case I have to continue my search.

    Thanks for your help anyways.

    Hi creativepinkbutterfly,

    Yes. It will show parent categories. Parent of the current category, or parent of the categories the current post is assigned to.

    If you are trying to show only ‘top level’ categories you will want to use something like wp_list_categories()
