Subject Re: Category browser - subcategory view of entries
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:55:08 GMT
Subcategories were pulled out in Roller 5.1, they don't exist anymore.  
Quoting Roller's founder "I don't know anybody who uses subcategories," 
and as they were trebling the code complexity for something that nobody 
or next to nobody was using, we retired them. You can still create menus 
in your templates and link them to whatever desired, similar perhaps to 
the gaurav theme.
