Hi everyone,

I’m having trouble working out how to display a list of categories on a page. I’d like to display a list of links to all my categories in a on a page.

I want to do this because currently I’m linking only to ‘featured categories’ in my sidebar, using regular hardcoded links. I’d like to put a link under the list of featured category links to a ‘View all features’ page, which would simply list all of my blogs category links by pulling a list of categories from the database.

Ideally I’d like to be able to right a short description under each of the category links. However for now I’d be happy with a simple list of links to all the categories.

Does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks in advance for your help.
