Hello everyone concerned,
I've been trying to discuss this issue with several people.... I think we need a mechanism where we can LIMIT categories show in the right menu... such as "show categories only 2 level deeper the current category". This is when the cat is defined.... in case of index page where cat is not defined, we should show only top cats or cats 1 or 2 leve deeper..... This whole issue actually starts from here :
Let's discuss this further.
