== Description ==
The AVH Extended Categories Widgets gives you three widgets for displaying categories.
1. Replacement of the default category widget to allow for greater customization.
1. A top categories widget. Shows the top X categories. This requires WordPress 2.8 or higher.
1. 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 gives you the following customizable options:

* Hide empty categories.
* Show categories hierarchical.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==
= What about support? =
I created a support site at http://forums.avirtualhome.com where you can ask questions or request features.
= Depth selection =
Starting with version 2.0 and WordPress 2.8 you can select how many levels deep you want to show your categories. This option only works when you select Show Hierarchy as well.
Here is how it works: Say you have 5 top level categories and each top level has a number of children. You could manually select all the Top Level categories you want to show but now you can do the following:
You select to display all categories, select to Show hierarchy and select how many levels you want to show, in this case Toplevel only.
= I want to help and translate the plug-in =
The .pot file is included with the plug-in.
If you have created a language pack, or have an update of an existing one, you can send the [gettext .po and .mo files](http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress) to me so that I can include them in future releases.
I'll keep a list of translators and their websites here in the readme.txt and on my website.
I have also setup a project in Launchpad for translating the plug-in. Just visit http://bit.ly/95WyJ
