This is part of the azurecurve ClassicPress Plugins which introduces the plugins I have available for ClassicPress.
The plugin I am going to cover in this post, is an existing one which has been brought up to standard brand new one; Filtered Categories.
The Filtered Categories plugin adds a new widget which can be used in the sidebar, or other widget areas, which can be set to include or exclude certain categories; widget details are configurable and allows a link to be set to a full category list on a page.
The Categories widget in this sites sidebar uses this plugin to present a much shortened list of categories; the full category list can be found here.
The plugin can be downloaded via my Development site.
