List category posts
[resolved] List posts by TAG regardless of category (4 posts)

    Is it possible to list all the posts that have the same tag, regardless of what category they are in ?

    I tried [catlist tags="tag name"] but that doesn't bring any posts up...

    Likewise with the sidebar widget -- the only option is to choose a category... just hoping there's a way to get posts by their tag...

    Thanks

    I've got a workaround - if I include ALL my categories by ID (it's a long list but not too long), then I can get the plugin to retrieve posts with a specific tag using the shortcode.

    However, in the widget I don't see an option to get posts with a particular tag.

    Am I missing something?? Can I add something with PHP or something else to make the widget have the TAG option??

    I've got a workaround to the widget not including a TAG option.

    I installed a plugin so I can use shortcodes in text widgets (this can also be done by adding two lines to functions.php - google it to get the code).

    Now I can put the same type of shortcode call in the widget as I'm using in my pages and posts.
