Hi Neil, looks good, but just wondering if you want to upload a screenshot with an example of show_top_categories() output. Thanks!

I’m not Neil :-)

But anyway I have uploaded an image. The plugin is running live at my website in the bottom of the side bar (sorry page is not in english) http://soerenlarsen.dk

Ah, so you’re not – I looked in the wrong place. Sorry, Soren (yes, unicode support coming soon :-).

Anyway, that looks sweet – thanks.

Well done slamidtyfn - I actually managed to cobble one together myself - but I do now have another project for a customised ‘Recent Posts’ script…

Hi Neil,

Is it a project you are working on privately or a project here at micropledge?

Here is a manual page for the WP Top Categories Plugin. The page will be updated when the plugin is updated:
