Flexible Posts Widget
[resolved] Multiple taxonomies (8 posts)

    I love this plugin and the last update fixed any problems I had with the plugin, except for one: I would love to be able to select multiple taxonomies or post types.

    I am currently using one Flexible Posts Widget for every post type, but what I would like is to display the most recent posts from those post types and the 'post' post type on my frontpage. Right now it seems like I can only select one at a time.

    What would be nice, too, if there was a way to only include specified categories or tags or to exclude categories or tags.

    Thanks!

    Hi Naz,

    Setting up multiple post-type support should be simple enough. I'll add that to the wish list. I should also be able to add multiple terms from the same taxonomy.

    Unfortunately, setting up complex queries using multiple taxonomies & terms or taxonomies/terms and post-types together probably won't happen. There are too many intricacies for a simple widget to handle when creating these types of queries.

    A possible solution for this (and the request to exclude categories/tags) would be to create a category or tag that is used exclusively to display items in the widget. If you'd prefer to not include such a category or tag on the front-side, you could also create a non-public custom taxonomy & term(s) to use specifically for this purpose. This new taxonomy could then be added to any post type(s) and FPW could then get posts from that taxonomy & term regardless of their post-type and any other taxonomy & term mappings the posts may have.

    Hopefully that helps point you in the right direction and thanks the feedback.

    Sarah,

    The plugin already supports custom post types. You can get posts by a specific post type or by taxonomy & term.

    Sarah,

    As the plugin documentation states, you can create you own templates with whatever information you'd like to display from each post. See the section titled "To use a customized HTML output template" here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flexible-posts-widget/installation/
