List category posts
[resolved] categorypage not available in Widget (14 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to use the plugin as a Widget but miss a feature in the possible settings:
    [catlist categorypage="yes"]

    The idea is to replace the standard WordPress "Archive" function by the plugin and show the "Archive" of the current post's category.

    Questions:
    - will the above option be implemented in the widget any time soon?
    - can I increase the implementation priority by a book donation? :-)
    - any other idea for the mentioned purpose?

    CU and thanx for the great plugin!

    Hi danci!
    Thanks for using the plugn :)

    To answer your questions:
    1 - I've just implemented this and released it on version 0.30.2 :)
    2 - Though I really appreciate donations, they generally don't directly affect the priority of a feature. You're more than welcome to donate a comic book from my wishlist if you want to show appreciation though :)
    3 - I improved the way the current category is detected, and added the feature to the widget, just select "Current Category" on the widget's Category selection box. Let me know how it works out for you.

    Regards,

    Hi Fernando,
    thanks for the update!

    I've just installed it but the "Current category" is not used in the post when selected via Widget or in the text.

    Example is to be viewed here:
    http://test.waywood.de/2013/04/01/ostersonntagskinder/

    Category is "Wurf Lotte - März 2013" but even with a short one like "Welpen" or a combination of both the plugin always lists all posts.
    Category list should appear in the side menu and in the text.

    When I name a category then the list is generated fine.
    Example:
    http://test.waywood.de/welpen/2012-06-lotte/
    List in the text.

    Would you please have a look into this piece of code?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Aw, puppies!

    I don't quite get what is working and what is not. Did 'currentcategory' stop working for you when using the shortcode?

    Category is "Wurf Lotte - März 2013" but even with a short one like "Welpen" or a combination of both the plugin always lists all posts.

    What shortcode are you using here? Looks like it might be an issue with sub-categories. Welpen is a category, and Wurf Lotte - März 2013 is a subcategory of Welpen, right?

    What do you mean with "when I name the category"? It looks like you're using the "normal way" to list the posts in that page and it's working.

    PS: Done, thanks :)

    picandocodigo, there's something wrong since last update.

    i've been using the shortcode (catlist categorypage="yes") for a while but after the upgrade it doesn't properly lists currenty category - rather it lists ALL the posts.

    tried the widget set to "currenty category" with the same behaviour. when the widget is set to some of categories it works ok but it seems the plugin have problem identifying post's current category :-/

    thanks

    You are both right indeed.There was a bug with version 0.30.2. I thought the code I rewrote to get the current category from the widget would work on the posts too, but it didn't. So I added a fallback for the previous code and now it should be working again. Let me know if it does!

    Thanks :)
