Top level ctaegory view with child objects then shown (4 posts)

    I have a series of categories, for example:

    2012 Presentations
    2011 Presentations
    2010 Presentations etc

    Beneath each category are a series of downloads...PDFs etc.

    When the user clicks my "Downloads" pages (which currently contains wpdm_tree shortcode) I'd like them only to see the top level categories, which they then need to click to see the child objects of that category.

    I cannot work out how to do that, though? I have tried ticking the appropriate categories of each downloads but the tree view seems to show literally everything?

    Shaon, thanks.

    In the meantime, I have approached it like this :

    Within WP, created a parent page called 'Downloads' and then created several child pages with Downloads as their parent. I then add 'Downloads' page as a menu item with each child page as nested menu children.

    In downloads manager, I have then created a corresponding category for each page which I then embed the shortcode of in each corresponding page, e.g. {wpdm_category=MyDownloadsCategory}

    So for examples:

    Pages :-
    ....2012 Presentations
    ....2011 Presentations

    Categories in Downloads Manager
    ..2012 Presentations
    ..2011 Presentations

    In Page '2012 Presentations' embed shortcode {wpdm_category=2012 Presentations}

    So same effect but using WP and DM combined.
