The plugin is long initialized before anything is even shown on the screen. The
$connections->retrieve->categories(); method only retrieves the raw data. You would have to loop thru the data.
Try this instead:
cnTemplatePart::category( array( 'type' => 'link', 'layout' => 'table', columns => 3 ) );
It’s a beta feature that I haven’t tested much beyond the actual coding of it to see if the basics worked.
