[Plugin: Rotating Posts] Skipping the first few posts (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I love the plugin. I've installed it for the campus paper I work at.

    I'm wondering if there's a way to instruct the plugin to display posts past the newest ones. As it is, the posts rotate in the box, but right underneath that are the same posts in regular form.

    Any way the plugin could skip the most recent articles and display ones that might be on the second page or lower on the main page? I'd rather not resort to "random posts".

    Thanks.

    This page http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/query posts might be helpful for you reguarding this. Although it does warn about it's use in other areas. I believe that you could integrate it into the plugin file without causing issues in your main theme query post. If you try this just make sure you back things up first and/or remember how to undo anything that you try.

    Someone else might have other ideas on this but hope this is helpful.

    You could create a category for those posts and then assign the posts you want to show up in the plugin by selecting that category in settings -> rotating posts -> Show posts from category.
