Continuing the discussion from Sidebar with categories:
I posted that question ︎ in the Sidebar with categories Plugin discussion.
I’m wondering how difficult it would be to customize that or write some custom code/plugin/theme component to allow extend that functionality and offer a nested folder type view of the categories and sub-categories.
I want the Categories listed in the Sidebar menu to show the main categories and Categories with Sub-Categories would clearly indicate this. then when you click on one, it shows the sub-categories. And the last key functionality is that no matter where you are in the forums, the sidebar would indicate the source/location of the active discussion that you are viewing.
e.g. So if someone visits our forums from an organic google search, and end up viewing a Topic in a Sub-category, we want them to see that they are in a Sub-category, within the main Category.
Not sure how difficult it would be to develop this and/or what the cost would be, but if anyone can help with this, please let me know!
