Category Archive plugin 0.2

Behold, version 0.2 of my category archive plugin!


  • Some type checking on the parameters passed in to the functions.
  • The addition of get_limited_category_archive(), which gets only the categories specified
  • The inclusion of a $getchildren parameter to the standard archive-getter, which allows excluding the display of child categories
