What's the difference between each "TYPE"

type="all" - If shortcode is set to type "all" it will display all categories, you need to also add attribute "title". If you'll look at the screenshot above, the "Design, Art & Multimedia" will be a title, while green list of links will be list of all job categories

type="only_parents- If shortcode is set to type "only_parents" it will display only top level categories, without the child categories. you need to also add attribute "title". If you'll look at the screenshot above, the "Design, Art & Multimedia" will be a title, while green list of links will be list of all job categories

type="group_by_parent" - If shortcode is set to type "group_by_parent" it will display all categories that have children. If you'll look at the screenshot above, the "Design, Art & Multimedia" will be a parent category, while green list next to it will be list of all child categories of "Design, Art & Multimedia". This will loop through all categories and show only the top level categories with children

type="parent" -  If shortcode is set to type "parent" it also needs attribute "parent_id" with ID of category to display. It will display only child categories of this category you've passed the ID of.
