    I’m using the following tidbit from the WIKI site for displaying child categories of a parent category. Works great.

    {exp:query sql="SELECT cat_url_title as category_url_title, cat_name AS category_name FROM exp_categories WHERE parent_id = '15'"}
    <li><a href="http://{path=channel/category/{category_url_title}}/">{category_name}</a></li>

    How do I tweak the query to only show child categories with entries in them?

    Thanks for your help!
