    Could you give more info? currently i doesn’t show custom categories by default, but you can change it to show posts from other types, by changing this SQL setence post_type='post' to post_type='YOUR_CUSTOM_TYPE' along the source code.

    Thank You for your replay. where can i change this code?

    That does not fix the buildHtml function, where the links are still being set for regular posts. I’m going to dig around and see if I can get this part to also work.

    You can change the code in the jquery-archive-list-widget.php inside the plugin. You should find various instances where you can change the sql query to post_type=’YOUR_CUSTOM_TYPE’.

    Sorry for hijacking the response on this post, but it might be helpful for @vijaykumarvemula to hear how I was able to get the plugin to work with my CPT’s.

    After I changed the sql queries to use my custom post type, I also went and changed the excluded cat line to also include just the taxonomies from my new CPT

    $cats = get_categories(array('child_of' => 0, 'hide_empty' => 1, 'hierarchical' => 1, 'taxonomy' => 'YOUR_CUSTOM_TAXONOMY'));

    You will also need to set up the date archive rewrites for your CPT ( because WordPress does not include this functionality out of the box.

    The plugin also utilizes the get_the_month and get_the_year functions, which do not support CPT’s. You can find these in the buildHtml function. You will need to change these functions to something like this Just make sure the function loads before it gets called in the plugin. That’s how I was able to make the plugin work for my CPT’s.

    Excluded categories weren’t working when I tested my result, and I realized that I needed to add my custom taxonomy here too:

    {$wpdb->term_taxonomy}.taxonomy = 'YOUR_CUSTOM_TAXONOMY'

    You’ll find this in a couple different parts of the plugin.
