# Octopress Category List

I tried copying everything, and put them in the right places, but initially I failed. I quickly realized that I wrongly named the plugin file as category_list.rb, and rake preview still didn’t produce the desired list. Then I moved the HTML file that calls the plugin, namely the category_list.html, from /source/_includes/asides to /source/_includes/custom/asides, and changed _config.yml a little bit.2
Finally, I copied the contents from my working example (i.e. /source/_includes/custom/asides/about.html) first. As expected, I could see that the “About Me (Brief)” section was duplicated. I changed the code bit by bit, and I managed to include a list of categories.
