Any idea's as to why this wouldn't work?

{exp:channel:categories channel="sales" style="linear"}
   {exp:gwcode_haschildren:check cat_url_title="{category_url_title}"}
   <li >{if gwcode_haschildren}{site_url}images/ico-arrowdn-a0a0a0.png{if:else}{/if}<div class="filter-checkbox"></div>{category_name}</li>

Hi Luke,

The plugin hasn't been designed to work that way. It's meant to be called only once, at the top of your template for one category only, not inside a loop.

I'll see if that's something I can change, but looking at your code, you're probably better off using GWcode Categories for what you're trying to accomplish. It allows you to loop through your categories and by using the "has_children" variable in an if conditional, you should be able to do what you want.

Thanks for the quick response. I will give it a shot. Thanks for your contributions to the EE society!
