    Hello Everyone.

    Okay, how do I get the categories widget to display categories for visible, published items only?

    Here's my situation: I have an events widget and a categories widget sitting on a page.

    On the categories widget, I have the ContentType field set to Telerik.Sitefinity.Events.Model.Event, Telerik.Sitefinity.ContentModules.

    So, I'm getting what I want: the categories assigned to events.

    The problem is that the categories widget is displaying categories for events currently in draft status, not published yet.

    So, one could click on a category and not have any events displayed.

    Is there a way to get the categories widget to only display categories for events that are visibly published?

    I am afraid I am not able to reproduce the issue on my side. I have tested the behavior on a Sitefinity 7.1 project and configured the widget to display the categories for the Events content type. The widget displays correctly only the categories for the published event items.

    I have also recorded a short video for your convenience demonstrating the behavior on my side. It would be great help if you can record a video demonstrating how the issue is reproduced on your side and the steps you have taken.
