Multi Column Category List plugin for WordPress 2.1 generates an alphabetical listing of your WordPress categories in multiple columns. You can choose the number of columns to display, with an option to split up the list of categories by letter. It also supports the use of a custom header to help separate the categories. For example, you could have it say ‘Topics: A’ and then list the topics that start with ‘A’, etc. The category list can easily be added to any post or page with the trigger text, or called directly from a template file. A CSS file is also included for easy style changes.

Installation & usage:

  • Download dd-multi-col-cats.txt, dd-multi-col-cats.css, and rename dd-multi-col-cats.txt from .txt to .php.
  • Upload dd-multi-col-cats.php to wp-content/plugins/ folder, and dd-multi-col-cats.css to your theme directory.
  • Activate the plugin from the WordPress admin panel.
  • Configure the options under the admin panel: Options - DDMultiColCats
    • To use this plugin, simply add the following trigger text to a post or page:

      <!-- multicolcats -->

    • If you prefer, you can also call the function directly from a template file with the following command:

      <?php echo ddmcc_generate(); ?>
