  1. What is new since version 3.2.2

    • Ability to assign multiple Category Groups to a post/page.
    • A Category Group can be assigned to 'special' pages. The 'special' pages are: Home, Category archive, Tag archive, Daily/Monthly/Yearly archive, Author archive, Search results page.
    • Bugfix: When using SSL in the admin section save would redirect to non-SSL and not saving the options.
    • Bugfix: Hierarchy in the dropdown with selected categories didn't work properly.
    • Bugfix: The widget for the Groups was a different setup as the others breaking certain theme layouts.


    The AVH Extended Categories Widgets gives you three widgets for displaying categories.

    1. Replacement of the default category widget to allow for greater customization.
    2. A top categories widget. Shows the top X categories. This requires WordPress 2.8 or higher.
    3. A Category Group widget. Shows categories from a group which is associated with the post/page that the visitor is looking at. Categories can be added to a group. Multiple groups can be made and every post/page can be associated with a different group. This requires WordPress 2.8 or higher.

    The Replacement Widget
    Customizable options:

    • Title of the widget.
    • Display as List or Drop-down.
    • Show number of posts (Count) after the category.
    • Hide empty categories.
    • Show categories hierarchical.
    • Show categories up to a certain depth. (Requires WordPress 2.8 or higher).
    • Sort by ID, Name, Count, Slug.
    • Sort ascending or descending.
    • Show RSS link after the category as text or image.

    You can set the following options for the Category Group Widget:

    • Which group to show when no group is associated with a post. Useful for older posts that don't have the association.
    • Set the default group when editing or creating a post.

    You can also select not to show the Category Group widget by selecting the group: None
