It’s an easy way to show and order all posts from category/tag into a page/post. Really handy for showing your tutorials, articles, etcetera.
It shows as a list(<ul><li>) so it will apply your blog style-sheet as you wish.

Note: If the selected term(category or tag) has a description, it will be shown in a <blockquote> tag.

To see it in action click here.

Usage:

  1. Go to Category Show’s options page and generate the tag.

  2. Insert your new tag into your post.

Tags to know:

If you want to apply some CSS, those are the tags you should know: <h3>, <ul>, <li>, <a> and <blockquote>.

Output example:

<h3>Category</h3>
<blockquote>Category description, if exists</blockquote>
<ul>
<li><a title="link title" rel="bookmark" href="link">title</a></li>
</ul>

That’s it!
