List Child Categorie and hide the parent

Greetings! I’m trying to list child categories in a sidebar, but also hide the parent cat.

Can you have a single set of “canonical” categories shared by all blogs?

When a site gets to a certain scale, storing categories on a per-blog basis starts to get a little messy. Assuming someone would want all WPMU blogs to share a single set of categories, how might one go about that? My gut it so store a set of “cannonical” categories in the root blog. Is […]
