    I simply cannot get the Categories List to display categories for a blog. I have changed the providername and entered several test categories, assigned one to a blog, but no success. Please advise as to what I am doing wrong.

    Hello Jamal,

    Drop BlogPosts control on a page. Then drop CategoriesTree control on the same page. Do not use CategoriesList control.
    Then set the following properties of CategoriesTree control

    • Data
    ProviderName - Blogs

    • Behavior
    CategoryContentUrl - url to the page where BlogPosts control has been dropped.
    CategoryKey - BlogCatID
    CategoryKeyType - ID

    You may find the following blog post useful - Filter CategoriesTree control by blog

    Sincerely yours,
