display categories list with icons in a dropdown menu (6 posts)

    I'd like to use this plugin to display the list of my categories in a dropdown menu rather than just in a list format. There is already a WordPress function to display categories in a default dropdown list (without icons) which is available from Codex:

    <?php wp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none=Choose...&show_count=1'); ?>

    Is it possible to alter the above function to display the icons in the dropdown list along with the text?

    Thanks in advance.

    it is possible but not simple. I've found a thread that talk about icons in dropdown menu : maybe that could be a start.

    I see. Thanks for pointing that out.
    Would come in even more handy if you could as well give me the URL to that thread you mentioned :)
    Appreciate your time.

    Sorry : http://www.talkphp.com/javascript-ajax-e4x/4011-dropdown-menu-icons.html

    I've tested it : it worked just under firefox. :(

    This was actually just some "fancy" feature I wanted on the website I'm working on, and since I didn't have that extra time to try to figure it out, I just went along and forgot about it. HOWEVER, I would love to know if anyone could figure out how to do it.

    Hello there,
    Same problem here if anyone can figure it out.

    I find it odd that displaying a category menu with category icons in a widget is so difficult (as far as my google searches go) in wordpress.

    Thanks anyone for any pointers.
