I really appreciate your help with this.
I followed your instructions but can't get the 'Read more' link to display unfortunately.
I created the folder and php doc with the above code. I wasn't sure where to put so have tried in the themes folder but when that didn't work tried putting the php doc in the plug ins folder where the list-category-posts folder already exists.
I tried the shortcode [catlist id=4 template=myownpostlist] as well incorporating into a more detailed version I'd already created:
[catlist id=4 template=myownpostlist date=yes date_tag=span date_class=lcp_date excerpt=yes excerpt_size=180 excerpt_tag=p excerpt_class=lcp_excerpt numberposts=12 ]
I just get an error on the page where the list of posts should be yet it works fine without thetemplate=myownpostlist bit :
$lcp_display_output = ''; $lcp_display_output .= '
'; foreach ($this->catlist->get_categories_posts() as $single): $lcp_display_output .= '
'; $lcp_display_output .= ''; endforeach; $lcp_display_output .= '
'; $this->lcp_output = $lcp_display_output;
This is the url if it's any use:
The theme is Cushy by Woo Themes.
Any further help that could get this working would be very much welcome!
many thanks again
