‘before_widget’ => ”,
‘after_widget’ => ”,
‘before_title’ => ”,
‘after_title’ => ”,

You if you have already registered any sidebar, you can drag the WP Categ Menu widget inside it, at wp-admin

  2. Use the PHP code bellow where you want the widget to show, on your theme pages
    /* if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘wp_categ_menu’)) : endif; */
  3. You can also play with its CSS styles, so using the ids divcateg, ulcateg and the dynamic generated licateg_[category slug], you may change the category menu appearance. If you choose to use the select field menu, use the element selcateg to change CSS.
