    Ok, it do't work with subcategories, so i have splitted all my categories by han on cde of sidebar without use widget:
    but how to insert this code on sidebar template?
    1) If I insert directly
    then I rad it on top of siebar.
    2) If I insert it in this way:
    <?php value: wp_list_categories('orderby=order&title_li=');?>
    then all disappear apart head and I read this error:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/partyfunit/domains/partyefun.it/public_html/scherzi/wp-content/themes/smells-like-facebook/sidebar.php on line 2
    Here is code of my categories, that I have listed here by number, but then they are showed alfabetically and i don't want it:
    <?php wp_list_categories('include=7,39,45,46,8,9,10&title_li=<h2>' . __('Fun') . '</h2>' ); ?>

      <?php wp_list_categories('include=11,48,13,49,74,51,52,17,50,38,3&title_li=<h2>' . __('Party') . '</h2>' ); ?>

      <?php wp_list_categories('include=14,55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,70,71,72&title_li=<h2>' . __('Eventi') . '</h2>' ); ?>

    By default, your only choices for orderby are:
    name - Default

    If you are WP multisite with global_terms_enabled you won't be able to edit the slug.
    If you are a single install of WP3 edit the slug.(ie instead of slug = catname, change it to slug = 1_catname, 2_catname etc)

    $args = array(
      'include'     => '11,48,13,49,74,51,52,17,50,38,3',
      'orderby'      => 'slug',
      'order'      => 'ASC',
      'title_li'     => '<h2>'.__( 'Party' ).'</h2>',

    If you install the "My Category Order" plugin correctly:


    It adds a new parameter 'order' to 'orderby' and an admin page to edit category order. (The plugin does not check for global_terms_enabled, so you might not want to run this plugin in WP3 multisite, I figure.)

    Anyway, after setting up your new category order, your sidebar code might become something like what you've posted above:

    $args = array(
      'include'     => '11,48,13,49,74,51,52,17,50,38,3',
      'orderby'      => 'order',
      'title_li'     => '<h2>'.__( 'Party' ).'</h2>',

    You can always change the line responsible for outprinting categories: wp_list_categories($bm_query);
    (look for it in your theme functions)
    to that (so you can change categories order, just change names and numbers)

    It is much faster than WP default function and does exactly the same.
