I have a question, but I don't know whether there is a solution for it. By default, WordPress doesn't show categories in which there are no posts. I want to change that. I'm setting up a food blog, and some recipe categories will take some time to get a content. To be short: empty categories must be displayed.
I prefer to use a plugin instead of editing the CSS (bad experiences in the past with wrong/unreadible CSS (=whole site down)). To be short (again...): a plugin is the most interesting. For the moment I've made a post in which all categories are inserted. Unfortunately, donuts are no part of the French kitchen, if you know what i mean... ;)
