Genesis Featured Widget Amplified
Exclude latest from category (4 posts)

    Hello,
    is there some technique of this wonderful plugin, to exlude the latest post of a certain category? This is because I have 2 widgeted areas. In the first I want to show the last post from the "featured" category. In the second widget there is the stream of all posts from all categories. Being able to exclude from the second widget the latest post from "featured" category is needed to avoid duplications.
    Is it possible to do that in some way?
    Kind regards.

    you should be able to use the offset, but that is a general offset. It will skip the first "x" posts, so not necessarily just the posts from a specific category unless you are only showing that category.

    The only other option would be to skip all the posts in a given category.

    I understand. I suggest adding this feature, because it's not so uncommon to use that widget in the way I described. :)
    Thank you for making this great plugin.

    It isn't really feasible to make an offset for just a specific category within the greater query. It can be done but it is pretty awkward, really best suited to single instance custom solutions rather than a plugin.
