Featured Post Widget
[resolved] Widget doesn't display multiple entries anymore? (2 posts)

    I used to use this plugin to display multiple entries, then I updated, and now it only displays one entry. If I left the id field blank, it would list recent entries. Now with the drop down list.... it doesn't work the same anymore.

    Is there anyway to get a previous version of the plugin? Or does anyone know if this feature will be added again in the near future?

    Its stuff like this that makes me not want to update my plugins ever. I should have backed up the filesystems, but I honestly didn't see this change coming. The drop down list is silly for people that have oodles of posts. I understand that its easier for less experienced users, but there are plenty of other plugins that can show just one post.

    Hello Alison,

    I guess that's why they say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature'. I'm sorry to have taken away this possibility from you. The widget was supposed to only display one post at a time.

    By not giving an id of that post, the normal loop started and you had plenty of posts. That was for many people a reason to complain. So, this is new version, where you don't have the chance anymore, to display more than one post.

    But I actually have a plugin, that does display as many posts as you want (with offset and all). You might take a look here, if you are interested.
