Category Filter at Top, with Selected Category Pages updating in Widgets (2 posts)

    Very excited to find this plugin! Looking to use this plugin to allow a user to select from a category, and then the resulting pages load up on three widgets. http://cl.ly/image/0B3e1L1A1A2F

    I am hoping to have the widgets set by a Post Title (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) and being populated with the most recent post of that category.

    Where "Train me for a Marathon" -- Marathon is the Category, and user selects it from a dropdown with 4 other categories.

    The widgets with Day 1 / Day 2 / and Day 3 will be updated with the posts tagged with that category.

    Can you please describe how I can add this script to my home page, and set it for the widgets?

    Thanks so much!
    Catharine

    Hi!
    Since you don't need to filter by tag, you can use native wordpress function of a categories dropdown:

    <li id="categories">
    	<h2><?php _e('Posts by Category'); ?></h2>
    	<form action="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/" method="get">
    	<div>
    <?php
    $select = wp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none=Select category&show_count=1&orderby=name&echo=0');
    $select = preg_replace("#<select([^>]*)>#", "<select$1 onchange='return this.form.submit()'>", $select);
    echo $select;
    ?>
    	<noscript><div><input type="submit" value="View" /></div></noscript>
    	</div></form>
    </li>
