Your theme probably has at least a couple of ‘widgetised areas’. These are locations where you can add a widget, including the event categories widget. The event categories widget allows you to display a drop-down menu or list of all event categories (which have events).

Adding the widget

  • Go to Appearance > Widgets.
  • Find the “Event Categories” widget
  • Click the widget, select the widgetised area and click ‘Add widget’ or drag and drop the widget to the desired location

Widget Options

  • Title – The title of the widget
  • Display as dropdown – Check to display a dropdown which redirects the user upon selecting a category. If unchecked categories are displayed as a list.
  • Show hierarchy – Whether to display the hierarchical relationships between categories and sub-categories. If checked sub-categories are listed underneath their parent and indented. If unchecked categories are displayed without any indentation.
