Is there a way to list all categories with check boxes on side bar and when user presses "update" only posts within those categories will show on home page?

Although it looks like by default it has the categories as a dropdown select, it looks like this plugin could be slightly modified to fit your needs:

Taxonomy Picker

Taxonomy Picker is a widget which you can include in your sidebar to help visitors build complex queries using categories and your custom taxonomies by chosing terms from drop down boxes.

Thanks Gavin-this just what I was looking for in a widget. Is it possible to tweak the code on the small black boxes to something more visually pleasing? I can most likely change the code, but didn't know if it was something one should avoid. – user10467 Nov 21 '11 at 16:51
Great, I did use it but am needing some changes to work for me. – Joey Nov 21 '11 at 17:27
