I created custom post type. I created category called product-categories. I listed all categories in sidebar.php. How to show the sidebar in all the category pages listing all the categories. Sidebar.php code is,

'name', 'order' => 'ASC', 'hide_empty' => 0, 'use_desc_for_title' => 1, 'child_of' => 21, 'hierarchical' => 1, 'number' => null, 'echo' => 1, 'taxonomy' => 'product-categories', 'walker' => null, 'title_li' =>'' ); ?>

    I want to display this code visible in all the category pages. Please guide me

    the following code will work as for per your custom post type

    add the following code in sidebar.php to show your custom post type category

     //list terms in a given taxonomy using wp_list_categories  (also useful as a widget)
      $orderby = 'name';
      $show_count = 0; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
       $pad_counts = 0; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
       $hierarchical = 1; // 1 for yes, 0 for no
      $taxonomy = 'genre';
      $title = '';
      $args = array(
        'orderby' => $orderby,
        'show_count' => $show_count,
        'pad_counts' => $pad_counts,
        'hierarchical' => $hierarchical,
        'taxonomy' => $taxonomy,
         'title_li' => $title

    You can use

    // code stuff

    This function executes When any Category archive page is being displayed.
