Smart Categories for WordPress

Smart Categories is a simple to use WordPress plug-in that will allow you to display the posts from a single category or all the child category posts organized by category inside an existing post or page with no need to modify any php code.  You can see it in action on my fantastic freeware favorites pages.  You’ll notice that everything on the page is hyperlinked, the category, category Rss feed, and all posts.

Special thanks goes out to Justin Blanton and his “Smart Archives for WordPress ” plug-in, which gave me  the inspiration to create my Smart Categories and Smart Tags WordPress plug-ins.
