I have 3 categories, let's say they are A, B, and C. I want to show just the archives of category A on the widgets with the collapsible archive in wordpress.

Thanks for any help you can send my way.

What have you tried so far?
Have you tried any plugins? if not try a google search 'wordpress category widget'

I tried Extended categories plugin and it shows the list of category in the sidebar. Which is great! but is there a way that I can choose which category will show in the sidebar? And display its archive by year and/or month. thank you

well according to the page I pointed you to, it says you can
Quote:
Select which categories to show. (Requires WordPress 2.5.1 or higher).
so it looks like you can

You now have more experience with this widget than I do. I've never used it. You need to explore it and learn. You might see if the developer has a forun and can answer your question.

There are thousands of plugins and widgets and there is no way anyone can know them all

I'm happy to do it for you, or any personal customization or support. Send me a PM and I'll quote you my rate.

Hi there! I have a similar need and wondered what the final resolution of this was? Please direct me!
Here is my news section that displays only the posts in the category "news' and I want to create an archive page OR a widget that shows the # posts by month for just the category "news" (ID=7) (and then show posts in the category "news" by their tags would be even greater detail!!)
You can see Im playing around with widgets...

You might want to take a look at the List Category Posts plugin.
