WP-Category-Icons stopped working (FeedWordPress to blame?) (2 posts)

    Hi, I've been merrily using the WP-Category-Icons plugin (http://devcorner.georgievi.net/wp-plugins/wp-category-icons/) to display category icons next to my post titles at http://www.robertandrews.co.uk.

    My site uses FeedWordPress to autogenerate posts from RSS of my off-site work, placing posts into categories corresponding to off-site sources.

    The post at http://www.robertandrews.co.uk/2006/10/17/california-sun-to-power-third-of-googleplex/ is categorised in "My Work" as well as "E-consultancy", which is a child of the aforementioned. Its category icon for E-consultancy is displayed correctly on that front page (and also in the post itself).

    This afternoon, I switched the RSS source for this category from http://www.feedrinse.com/services/rinse/?rinsedurl=872e60b24adb58134c61ee933eb26097 to http://www.e-consultancy.com/news-blog/author-54946/robert-andrews.xml, after which the newest two posts were automatically syndicated in to the exact same two categories (at http://www.robertandrews.co.uk/2006/10/23/tube-could-be-giant-viral-music-network/ and http://www.robertandrews.co.uk/2006/10/23/bt-launches-free-remote-backup-service/).

    ** However, the category icon for E-consultancy is no longer being displayed and I've no idea why. **

    The only thing I can point to that's different is the RSS source. But the category icon plugin takes its cue from the categories themselves, not the RSS source.

    I am using the custom fields cocomment_trackall, rss:comments, syndication_feed, syndication_feed_id, syndication_permalink, syndication_source, syndication_source_uri and views. As I say, categories are exactly the same.

    Called in using this loop code... http://pastebin.ca/217676

    Any ideas for assistance please?

    I unticked the "My Work" parent category for all those posts in "E-consultancy" and the category icon now appears.

    So I guess the question is... how on earth does this WP-Category-Icon plugin cope with categories nested in a parent/child relationship?

    I could've sworn it dealt with this properly before!
