Genesis Slider
Genesis Responsive Slider - pull photo from each category vs. all recent posts (4 posts)

    I like this Slider a lot and it works great except one thing:
    I want the Genesis Slider to pull the most current post from each of my categories. Instead, it's pulling all my recent posts. That means that some categories have 2 photos and some of my categories don't show up at all. The slider is on my homepage.
    I can't find any documentation on how to set up the Slider. I have searched forums, my child theme support etc.
    For example, if the way to do it is by Post ID -- how do I set that? Where is the Post ID on the post?
    In lieu of any How To documentation - on the StudioPress site there's no discussion that I could find describing like basic FAQ on set up what I need to do is:
    The Slider should show current post from each menu category, 6 in total. (rather than just pulling ALL my recent posts.)
    I see the "include, exclude" button but have no idea how to do that. On Slider Settings, I set the drop down box to "All Categories" it pulls 2 posts from 1 category vs. 1 post (the most recent) from each category.

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately it doesn't have that feature.

    Okay but what about by ID? Why doesn't that work? When I set include or exclude IDs (categories) it doesn't do it or it will delete the slider. If you have the include/exclude ID feature on there... seems it should work.

    It doesn't make sense that the only thing you can do with the slider is expand it out to like 10 pics. What's the point of it?

    Why isn't setting by ID or any of that working? Why don't you have a basic FAQ on the Slider settings?

    It pulls the most recent posts/pages matching the criteria provided. It will not pull just one post from each category. WP_Query is not designed to work that way.
