Just upgraded to 3.0. Putting together a new site and trying to factor the balance between hard coding vs. using the new Menu and Widget features. I'm using the menu feature to control my main menu and I'd like to use the widget feature also without having to hard code sidebar type stuff in there.
Here is my issue:
1. I have a custom post type called "Downloads".
2. I want to use the "Custom Menu" widget and add it to the primary widget area.
3. I can create a "Downloads" Menu inside the menu area, but I can only select single posts from the "Downloads".
How can I get it so the menu is dynamic and will display recent downloads? I basically want to have a widget that is a "Custom Menu" attached to the "Downloads" menu that displays the most recent downloads.
