The function outputs directly to the page it does not allow any function to use the output.


Plugins and templates which used the deprecated list_cats can not use the replacement.



echo apply_filters('list_cats', $output);


$output = apply_filters('list_cats', $output);

if ( $echo ) echo $output;

return $output;

  • Component changed from Administration to Template
  • Milestone changed from 2.1.4 to 2.2
  • Priority changed from high to normal
  • Severity changed from major to normal
  • Summary changed from bug with wp_list_catories to Add ability to return list for wp_list_categories..
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement
  • Version changed from 2.1.2 to 2.1.3

This would make it similar to the functionality in wp_list_pages (and probably elsewhere too). Changes required are minimal.

At the end of wp_list_categories(), change the echo statement to this:

$output = apply_filters('list_cats', $output);
if ( $r['echo'] ) echo $output;
else return $output;

Add this to the $defaults array:

'echo' => 1

And there you go. This will allow an "echo" parameter similar to wp_list_pages() echo parameter.
