I’m working on my blog today – I have so many categories and child categories it was getting ridiculous.
I found Rob Felty’s Collapsing Categories plugin about 10 minutes ago and it’s perfect. You can style it in an options page, but I found the default styling worked fine for me.
In the widget there are many options, including:
- Excluding categories
- What happens when the category is clicked
- Sorting (various methods)
- Showing post titles or just child categories on expansion
- The icon to use beside expandable categories
- Using animation for expansion
- Leaving some categories auto-expanded
