I recently had to develop a WordPress widget plugin that would hierarchically list the categories of a blog, but in a decent amount of time, unlike the default category list, or any other widget I could find online.
The “FastCat” plugin currently works very nice on a database of 250 categories, containing more than 280,000 articles, so if you have a large WordPress database, you probably want to give this baby a try. Available options are:
- widget title
- root category
- toggle display on singulars (`article` or `page`)
If you have any comments or suggestions, please leave a comment at least. I would enjoy perfecting it, if possible.
