[resolved] [Plugin: Post Page Associator] Followed instructions. Did not work for me. (16 posts)

    Downloaded free version of plugin. Followed Mr. Hoppe's installation instructions. The 2 sample posts did not appear on the page. Tried the short codes. Did not work.

    Reread installation instructions. Read the lastest 10 "See what others are saying" messages. Tried some of the solutions discussed in the messages. Tried the short codes again. Visited Mr. Hoppe's web site. Still did not work.

    Your mileage may vary, but my configuration was unsuccessful.

    If I have time, I may try to deactivate all my other plugins, then reactivate one by one.

    Thank-you.

    Unfortunately "it does not work" is not a useful error description. ;) Some more details?

    Post title: Sample Post 1
    Post contents: Placeholder text for Sample Post 1
    Category: IRS Info

    Post title: Sample Post 2
    Post contents: Placeholder text for Sample Post 2
    Category: IRS Info

    Page title: IRS Info
    Page contents: Placeholder text for IRS Info page
    Followed the setup/configuration instructions for the plugin. Associated "IRS Info" category with "IRS Info" page.

    When I displayed the "IRS Info" page, all it said was:

    "Placeholder text for IRS Info page" - the posts associated with the IRS Info category did not display on the IRS Info page.

    Thus, it does not work. PHP version is 5.2.17.

    Hope this helps. Thank-you.

    Which Selection Mode did you choose? Did you select a template? Which Theme do you use? Which other Plugin do you use? Did you try to deactivate them?

    A known problem with thesis. Can you send me your theme please?

    Dennis,

    I think I got it figured out.

    My permalink structure was "/%category%/"

    When I changed it to "/%category%/%postname%/" then it started to work!

    I was looking at the "Introduction" page that listed my 5 sample posts that were categorized under the "Introduction" category. When I clicked on the name of the Post, nothing happened. Whenever I hovered over the Post name, the URL did not change. It stayed as http://www.website.com/introduction/ instead of http://www.website.com/introduction/sample-post-1/

    I will test it further. If all goes well, I will upgrade to the Pro version next week.

    Again, thank-you for all your extra effort and help. You have been marvelous.

    Hm, yes, the permalink structure should always contain the post id or the post slug. ;)

    I wanted to attach Posts of a specific Category to a Page. Does not work. No posts are shown. It used to work before.

    Any advice ?

    You did something wrong. The plugin works. ;)

    It worked when I changed permalink structure to "/%postname%/.

    However, it does not paginate. My normal posts in all other options are paginating properly but not those linked to a Page I have linked a category and all posts are showing up fine.

    Pagination is not included in the free version. -.-

    I use WP-Paginate. Will the pro version paginate itself or use this plugin ? I would like to buy.

    The WP-Paginate Plugin can only paginate Archive pages not multi page contents. Associated Posts Pro uses the themes multi page pagination and not the archive page pagination.
