Flexible Posts Widget
[resolved] Want pages as categories, posts in cats on sidebar (2 posts)

    I'm not a code talker at all. But with my site, I simply want to make main pages that introduce and are categories (Technical Documentation, for example) and then have only the posts associated with that category come up in the right sidebar. (Recent posts will be another listing.

    Can this widget do this and how? Go to wordsandtech.com to see the issue. I think we've got the flexible widget installed. Coming up with bullets and we've seen the discussion on that, hope the fix works.

    Hi Will,

    FPW isn't setup to pull posts from a category you are currently viewing automatically. FPW pulls posts from a category (or other tax & term) specifically-selected when you configure the plugin. You'd probably want to find a widget that gets posts from the same category as you are viewing instead of using FPW.

    However, you could manually accomplish this by creating a separate sidebar/widget-area for each category and then configuring a different FPW for each sidebar that is specific to that category. This certainly is not ideal since it requires a lot of manual configuration if you have a lot of categories.

    Hope that helps,
