Renkon, put categories in visible place

Hello all,

I’m using Renkon theme for a long time and would like to have the categories in a more visible place then the side menu. I was wondering if there is an option to have the categories visible on top, or at the footer or even at an open side bar.

I know thats not exactly how the theme was meant to work but was hoping for some solution. One possible solution I have in mind is to make a post that is linked to a filtered view of that category. An example will be a post with the name “flowers” that points to a link of the category “Flowers” – is that possible?

I also am not able to delete categories I no longer use.

Thank you in advance for any help.
