OK, I need a simple answer to a complex question, if someone who knows WP really well knows it.
I am trying to use Customizable Post Listings. In this thread, it appears CPL 1.5 works with one modification (adding the check for "post" vs "page"). At least, that's what people in that above thread say.
I am using 2.2. The post v page mod helps with that problem, but the plugin is still not working as advertised...I cannot narrow the custom list of posts by category. It just lists all of them, no matter if I put in a category ID or even hardcode a known category ID into the plugin itself.
Question: What possible different between 2.1 and 2.2 would cause this to happen? The SQL appears to be OK, so far as I can read down the table definitions in the documentation...so I'm totally lost as to why CPL 1.5 isn't working with WP2.2.
I'm about to get seriously desperate, because I'm working on my friend's candidate website, and I need to list "upcoming events" posts along with other "lists" that need generating elsewhere.
