    Can you use Query_Posts widget plugin to display posts by custom taxonomies? It looks like I can't do this. Does anyone have a good way to do this?

    I did just that -- I added the taxonomy Channels and it automatically showed up in the widget?

    Does nothing happen when you do something similar?

    I added a taxonomy called "Ad Positions", and it isn't showing up in the query-posts widget, see my config panel: http://cl.ly/a2a47e944c048bfb4de6

    I didn't add it via the Functions.php file, it was done via plugin, I don't know if that would make a difference or not.

    is it not the field "ad" to the right of "attachment" ? because you put a space in there, it's possible it didn't catch the second word... also I don't think it's recommended to have a two-worded taxonomy. it should probably just be Positions.

    or perhaps Ad is a post type you created?

    I created my post types and taxonomies using Custom Post Type UI if that's at all helpful....

    eeek.

    No, "Ad" is a custom post type (which is showing up fine). "Ad-Placement" is a custom taxonomy. I created mine with the GD Custom Post Type & Taxonomies plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-taxonomies-tools/

    Ok, I didn't know about the two word taxonomy issue, do you think that could be causing the problem?

    I feel like there's no reason for a taxonomy to have two words, is what I am thinking. If you think about all of the singular, one-worded items in wordpress (ie. everything), that's what sticks out to me.

    but then again, that's why there's such a thing as a slug. try making it hierarchical if one worded doesn't work. let me know what does work, though -- interested.
