Description

Given the following tree with the number of posts in parenthesis:

- root (1)
  - cat1 (0)
    - cat11 (1)
  - cat2 (1)

One would expect WordPress to understand:

- root (3)
  - cat1 (1)
    - cat11 (1)
  - cat2 (1)

WordPress seems to understand:

- root (1)
  - cat1 (0)
  - cat2 (1)

  • Keywords category added
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

This behavior seems to have been fixed. As of [5012], if you create a category hierarchy as shown, and put posts only in cat2 and cat11, and use the function call

wp_list_categories('hierarchical=true&show_count=true')

in your sidebar, you will get exactly what is shown as the "expected" behavior above.

Since the deprecated functions list_cats and wp_list_cats both now call wp_list_categories, I think they should work too (though I didn't specifically test them). If there is another function for listing categories that needs to be fixed, perhaps this ticket can be re-opened.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
