So I needed to show ALL categories except a few on the widget bar.

No biggy, but I didn’t want to hook ( hack ) in the core WP function ( wp_list_bookmarks() ) to achive this.
Searching the net didn’t give me a hit either …

So there we go ( went ) to create my very first plugin. Helped by the Add link 0.3 widget/plugin from enej I didn’t need very much time ..

The result: A fully customable ( exclude option & extra options in widget panel ) widget which works with wordpress 2.7.1 !!

To show all categories, just leave the ” exclude ” option blank.
