Is it possible to prevent a category from showing up in the Categories widget? I created a general category for those posts that didn't really fit neatly into other categories. But I'd rather not have that taking up space in the widget.

Hi Ken, Try this plugin. I used it for a client and it seems to work great for him. Maybe it will work for you.
Love coffee, chocolate and my Bella!
I installed it and have figured out some of the basics. But it isn't easy to figure out how to make it do what it SAYS it can do. Is there a forum somewhere? Or maybe you've got enough experience with it?
At the moment, specifically, I can't seem to get it to do 1 thing: Depth Selection - i.e. only show the top level (non-child) categories. I created a child category and enabled "Show hierarchy" in the widget. But I can't find an option (check box, etc.) anywhere to select to only show the top level, which the documentation says you can do. From the FAQ in the plugin: "Here is how it works: Say you have 5 top level categories and each top level has a number of children. You could manually select all the Top Level categories you want to show but now you can do the following:
You select to display all categories, select to Show hierarchy and select how many levels you want to show, in this case Top level only."
Either way, you've already helped me solve the original problem of picking and choosing which categories to show. I just saw all the other stuff this plugin can do and wanted to do more:).
