This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP E-commerce Expanding Categories


By default, the categories widget in WP E-commerce is fully expanded. If you have a large number of categories and subcategories this can be a bit too much. The WP E-commerce Expanding Categories plugin wraps the code that is discussed at in a WordPress plugin so that no editing of the theme is necessary, and turns the categories widget into an expandable/collapsible menu.


  1. Download from the WordPress repository
  2. Unzip the file
  3. Upload the unzipped directory wp-e-commerce-expanding-categories to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  5. That’s it. There are no options


Can I change the [+] symbol?

That is planned for future release
