Category Listings


The plugin outputs the most recent posts from the category of the post that is currently being displayed. It is possible to configure the number of posts to be output, the HTML before and after the whole of the output, the HTML before and after the post title and the HTML before and after the post excerpt.


  1. Upload category-listings.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  3. Configure your output in Settings->Category Listings menu.
  4. Either add the shortcode ‘category-listing’ in you posts where you want the listings to appear or place ” into you theme where you want the categories to be output.


Why can’t I use a widget for outputting the category posts?

This is in development.
