Footer Category List w/child(ren) in Multiple Columns WordPress

  • REFUNDED

I've got it on my own. Thanks, it's good to know you guys are here!

<strong>Category List w/child(ren) in Multiple Columns</strong> "child_of" to the footer. I have made poor attempt to do it myself take a look at my current Footer: www.aniphyo.com It displays as one long list.

Is it possible to just have 5 Parent Categories + and their sub-categories? (Like in the "Side Bar" Navigation Box). "Currently the sidebar bar is populating all sub cat's for particular five cats"

<strong>Style</strong>
Make "Browse by Categories" styled like "ani's book" with blue line, the length of 3 columns.
Make "Current Events" styled like "ani's books" with blue line, the length 1 column.

Hi,

You are doing it well, just that you need to use a <div> with a css left float instead of using a table to contain your category list.

example;


<div style='width:100px;float:left;'>
<font face="Georgia">Browse by Categories</font><br />
<?php if (! function_exists('catList')) { function catList() { $args = array( 'orderby' => 'name', 'order' => 'ASC', 'show_last_update' => 0, 'style' => 'none', 'show_count' => 0, 'hide_empty' => 1, 'use_desc_for_title' => 1, 'child_of' => 0, 'current_category' => 0, 'hierarchical' => true, 'number' => NULL, 'echo' => 1, 'depth' => -1 ); wp_list_categories( $args ); } }
?>
<?php catList(); ;?>
</div>



For breaking into next line
