WP Tiles
linking tile and category (3 posts)

    Two things: on the same note.

    1: Is there a way to select the order of categories so that a given category always appears in a given box?

    2: We tried entering category IDs in 'include' and 'exclude', but all that happened was that we got nothing.

    BTW: We really, really, really love this plugin. I know that what we want to do we can.

    Hi Atkantor, you can modify which tiles are loaded where using the filters in the plugin. This does require quite a bit of programming though. If you're comfortable with php and need some pointers, send me a message through my website and I'll see how I can help.

    Alternatively, you can more easily have static pages show up on fixed places in your Tiles, using this gist: https://gist.github.com/mgmartel/4454318
    I don't know if this is solves your problem.

    As for the include and exclude, they refer to individual posts instead of categories.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I only need to be really specific for our home page.

    I am an 'also ran' php programmer, which means I'm just smart enough to understand if I 'get' the parameters. Not always sure how to use them once I figure them out.

    SO, I'm assuming this will allow me to me to intersperse fixed page tiles within a matrix of category posts. Here's what I tried:

    I put the gist in the functions.php of the child theme. Didn't break my site which always charms me. In the page that I created I added:

    [wp-tiles Template=TGE posts_query='category=328&fixed_page_tiles=8,4&$page=445,91']

    Tried lots of different variations [no ampersand, move ' mark etc. I really do not KNOW what I"m doing. What should we be entering?

    Thanks, Tana
