That is probably because $model.weblog.getWeblogCategory("Noticias")
or some other call to getWeblogCategory() is failing and returning
null. You might need to pass "/Noticias"

If you use #showWeblogCategoryLinksList() then you're gonna get a list
(i.e. with <li> elements). You can use CSS styles to make those go

You don't have to use #showWeblogCategoryLinksList(), you can write
your own Velocity code to display the categories any way you'd like.

Hope that helps...
