Show subcategory in a category page

If you're comfortable editing your theme, this code snippet will bring you a list of all sub-categories of the current category (from the session, so this should work anywhere in your theme). I typically use this in app/design/frontend/default/*theme_name*/template/catalog/category/view.phtml

<?php
$_category  
= $this->getCurrentCategory();
$collection
= Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->getCategories($_category->entity_id);
$helper    
= Mage::helper('catalog/category');
?>

<ul>
   
<?foreach ($collection as $cat):?>
               
<?php if($_category->getIsActive()):?>
               
<?php
                     $cur_category
= Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($cat->getId());
                     $_img
= $cur_category->getImageUrl();  
               
?>
               
<li>
                                <a href="
<?php echo $helper->getCategoryUrl($cat);?>">
                                     <img src="
<?php echo $_img?>" title="$cat->getName()"/>
                                     
<cite><?php echo $cat->getName();?></cite>
                               
</a>
                       
</li>
               
<?php endif?>
   
<?php endforeach;?>
</ul>
