1. Install Plugin
2. Add [category_id=x] to the page you want to show your post of a category 
    (x is the category id you want to display. For example: [category_id=3]).
2.1 Add [category_posts=2] if you only want to show 2 posts. 
    If you want to display ten posts from cat_id 1, it should look like this:  [category_id=1][category_posts=10].
2.2 See FAQ for "Howto find category id"
3. Thats it.


Why is it untranslated?

WordPress 4 and above

    1. Open Settings -> General in your WordPress backend.
    2. Scroll down to "Site Language"
    3. Set your prefered language.
    4. Now Single Categories should work fine.

    WordPress Versions under 4.0

    When you don't set you language in you wp-config.php file, 
    the plugin don't know what to translate.
How can I manually set my language in wp-config.php (WordPress < 4.0)
  1. Goto your WordPress directory
    2. Open the wp-config.php file
    3. Search the string “WPLANG”
    ther is a line with that “define (‘WPLANG’, ”);”
    4. Set your language iso between the 2nd inverted comma.

    'de_DE' for german
    'en_EN' for english
    'es_ES' for Spain
    'fr_FR' for french 
    so when you edited it (to english), it should looks like that:
    define ('WPLANG', 'en_EN');
What if my language isn’t supported?

If your language is not supported, you can translate it by your own 🙂
You can move to my plugin site, and download the Main file.

    When you work like in the description, and translate this few word, 
    upload it to my site and in the next update this language is supported to.
    (Your WP can support it as far you are finished - follow the description :-D )

How do I translate for my own?

To translate by your own, you need a programm like pedit(
When you installed poedit, you can download a blank translation file from

    then thera are just a few steps to go.

    1. start poedit
    2. File > new catalogue from pot file
    3. Change (left on bottom) the filetype from GNU-GETTEXT... ->
        to All filetypes
    4. Choose the downloaded file
    5. Fill out the fields like translator and email.
    6. Fill out language with your lang code (like en_EN)
         (2nd have to be uppercase)
    7. Don't fill out plural..
    8. Press OK
    9. Select a place to save the file an rename it to 
        "finbey_singlecat-eg_EG.po" (eg_eg is a placeholder for your language)
    10. Klick on the english words, and on bottom is the translation box.
    11. Fill in the correct translation (for the plugin) and click on the next one 
    12. If you're finish, upload your .po file, to 
    13. I'll add it to the plugin. ATTENTION: if you upload the correct tranlation, 
        you'll get an description, how to manually add your tranlation (so you can use it)
I can’t see an numeric Category id on my site

If its like you can’t see some category id in links, you got 2 options

    1. Change the permalinks settings

        - Go to (in you backend or also called wp-admin) to settings
        - then permalinks (may write other in your language don't know)(in left sidebar )
        - choose an option like ""

    2. Get id from categories itself

        An other Method, is that you go to Posts, categories and hover 
        over the category names, there should be displayed an
        url onb bottom of your browser. The category id is the tag_ID 
        so if tag_ID=3 is displayed in the link, the category id is 3.
What should I do if I’ll find a bug or an error?

Open the support form on the plugin site, or write me a mail.
The plugin site and my mail adress are written in the description.

I want to display more than 5 Posts in one of my Pages, what to do?

After inserted [category_id=x] you can additional add [category_posts=x] for how much posts it should display.
i.e if you write [category_id=1][category_posts=123] it displays 123 Posts of the category 1.


no clue – no instruction

doesnt work and the link to the instructions is also not working, so i have no clue what to do, even the read-me page does not work

Passt perfekt

Hallo, Das Plugin ist genau das, was ich die ganze zeit gesucht habe. Dass es, wie in der beschreibung steht, noch nicht ganz fertig ist, merkt man garnicht, da der macher sich wohl auf die Englische Ãœbersetzung bezieht. Die installation und Nutzung ist einfach. Einfach das machen, was unter "installation" steht und schwupps, perfekt. Das ist das was ich gesucht habe! Danke! p.s habe mich extra registriert um diese Rezension zu schreiben, dass war es wert! lG
