Hi all, still learning Orchard and wondering what the right approach is to a relatively simple task.

I have a list of custom pages broken down into categories. I have a taxonomy field on each page that links to the correct category.

Currently, for each category I build a query and a projection widget, drop those in the correct order on the correct layer. But this set of content is going to exist in at least two places, which means I'm creating 2 x 7 categories = 14 widgets for just a couple subsections of content.

That seems a bit unwieldy, my widgets/layers page could get ugly fast. Is there a slick way to just query all the categories and then display their children in one widget? Or do I have to split it out like this?
