    This new update breaks the DFI plugin. When people try to open the media library with this plugin, nothing happens.

    Can you describe the issue in more details?
    For me the media library is visible after I had open it. All with the DFI plugin installed.


    The media library is visible. However, when the latest version of Category Post Widget is active, it blocks DFI from behaving properly.

    When DFI is installed, it creates a new box in the CMS (I’m using Classic editor) called “Featured Image 2” (bottom right corner). Traditionally, when you click on that box, it then open the media library. However, when the new version of CPW is installed, nothing happens when clicking on that box. It’s still possible to access the library through normal means, but that doesn’t help with DFI. I have to deactivate CPW, do what I need to do with DFI, then reactivate CPW. As you can imagine, it wasn’t the case a week or so ago.

    Thanks a lot for your reply and request for more details. It is greatly appreciated.

    You are right. It’s our widget.
    We upload a new version 4.9.4.

    You can say thanks with a 5–stare rating.

    Done 🙂 And you deserve it. That was really great support work.

    Ok, spoke too soon, I still have the issue. I hadn’t tested the update when I marked the post resolved. I updated to 4.9.4, but I have the same problem and the fix is the same: deactivating CPW fixes it.

    P.S I did clear my cache and test the 4.9.4 update on different browsers, but yeah, I’m still seeing an issue.

    Mmmmh, I forgot to update the version for external JS files.
    That version Url param for our external JS file can be tricky for browser caches.

    I upload that little patch immediately.

    Can it possible for you to download the widget ZIP file, pick only the cat-posts.php file and override that file at your web server to [your-WP-installation]/wp-content/plugins/category-posts-widget/cat-posts.php?

    That did the trick. Although, just for the less initiated who might stumble upon this, the path is [your-WP-installation]/wp-content/plugins/category-posts/ not category-posts-widget.

    Thanks again @kometschuh. The 5-star rating is well deserved.
