#7115 closed enhancement (invalid)

wp_category_checklist should have option to exclude the parent category from the generated tree

In WP 2.5.1 there is an option to only generate a part of the category tree by adding a value for the variable "descendants_and_self" but there currently there seems to be no way to limit the category tree to the child categories of the parent category without displaying it as well.

I suggest an additional option for the function wp_category_checklist that allows this. I have attached a fix I've applied in a WP installation.
