wp_list_cats woes (2 posts)

    I'm having major trouble with wp_list_cats. I have the following categories (number at left is ID, - indicates child):

    30 Blog
    - 1 General
    - 2 Jargon
    - 27 Rants
    - 31 Tea
    3 Ticker
    - 9 Der Langrisser
    - 25 FEIDIAN
    - 10 Heroine Anthem
    - 11 Heroine Anthem II
    - 12 Legend of the Swordsman & Fairy
    - 26 NINJA
    - 24 Obsoleted

    I want it to appear as a list with the children indented, but unless I set hierarchical=0, NOTHING AT ALL appears. I thought maybe it was due to no posts in the parent categories, but after adding posts, that turned out to be false.

    What string should I be using? An empty string or sort_column=name does nothing, and sort_column=name&hierarchical=0 makes a big ugly un-indented list that mixes all the children together.

    I am using WordPress 1.5.2

    From the Codex article on wp_list_cats, I'd say you'd want:
    <?php wp_list_cats('children=1&hierarchical=1&hide_empty=0'); ?>.

    This string should display your list of categories with the children categories indented and all categories will be displayed (regardless of whether there are posts in the categories).
