Flexible Posts Widget
[resolved] Filter by metadata? (3 posts)

    I'm using this plugin (which is awesome, btw!), including a custom template, to display a custom post type of special offers in my site's sidebar. The CPT includes a metabox for the offer's status (i.e., Active/Inactive).

    I'm wondering if there's any code I can add to the custom template to further filter the widget's query by the status? I've been able to do this successfully in other areas of the site (like so: http://pastebin.com/nGzdrLUK), but I'm unsure if or how to filter a query that's already been called. I tried using pre_get_posts but couldn't make it work.

    Hi artgeek,

    The current version of the plugin doesn't allow you to filter or edit the query vars. However, I've been working on a new version that will allow that.

    On order to make it work right now, you'd need to edit the query args directly in the plugin's code files: flexible-posts-widget.php inside the widget function.

    The new version should be out this week yet. Thanks for using the plugin!
