(Pro Pack purchaser) I notice that in the Category Widget, there isn’t an option (in the widget area) to specify which category to display on the page.
How can I make sure the only categories on the ones I specify for the list_type given?
(Does it follow the categories listed when I write the shortcode?)
Can you please give me an example?
No, the categories shortcode is completely independent of any shortcode option you may have set on a page. There really is not a way within WordPress to “link” options set in a shortcode with a widget. So for what your asking is not possible. I already have on my todo list for the widget at add the ability to limit the categories but I do not have an eta for when this enhancement will be added.
