    Default Remove Sub-Categories in Sidebar


    Is there a way to remove the sub-categories in the sidebar and only show the parent categories?

    I tried adding depth=1 to this line in the sidebar.php file:
    <li><?php wp_list_categories('show_count=1&title_li=<h2>Cate gories</h2>'); ?></li>


    <li><?php wp_list_categories('show_count=1&depth=1&title_li= <h2>Categories</h2>'); ?></li>

    but it had no effect.

    For non Socrates Wordpress questions, the fastest answer can almost always be found with a quick google search.

    wordpress hide subcategories

    The simplest solution I found with a google search was to add this to style.css

    .children { display:none; }

    There are also "hide categories" plugins to do this..
