On my site I have a journal page - which is basically just being used to show all the posts. I've noticed that the categories do not show by default and I would like them to. I read this article in the codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_list_cats#Notes_on_use
And I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. If I want the categories to show by default, I need to change the tag
<?php wp_list_cats('optioncount=1&exclude=' . $sidebar_cat_id); ?> - but I'm a little confused as to what I need to change to... If I understood the article correctly, the optioncount needs to be "1" which sets it to true?
I'm having a little difficulty comprehending (medication will do that to ya) Any help is much appreciated.
