Maybe it's just me, but I kind off expected Anything Boxes to include all sub-categories when I choose a parent category.


Why doesn't it? Can I make it do that? Hooking off every sub-category of my News category is cumbersome, especially when I add new sub-categories quite often.

Hey Attac,


I thought it would be best to be explicit with categories to allow for deeper level control. You might be better off using the "exclude" option for your category checkboxes if it saves you time and is more consistent.

I came to the forum looking for this exact thing. It'd be ideal to have an option to include children because the parent category is a bit of a control -- no telling what the child categories will be. Having children is really needed for my usage. I'd love to see an update to add an option to include children or not. That's my vote. :-)
