Shows a list of all categories in the selected category tree or all categories when the Root category is selected. We recommend using either this menu item or the Episodes Page menu item for your main Ideal Podcasts menu item. The list of categories page is where you can find all the information you need about each category, such as the title, the summary, and the number of episodes in this category. Remember that each category has its own Podcast RSS feed, so it works like an entirely different podcast.
