Featured Category Widget
[resolved] Disable offset if on the current post? (6 posts)

    Hi-

    I'm using this plugin on my choir's website to display our next performance, and it's working well on almost all the site's pages.

    http://www.lanierchambersingers.org/category/performances/current/

    If I view the featured post, however, the widget changes and displays a different post. I want the widget to always stay the same. Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks-

    Jon Arnold

    Hi Jon Arnold,

    the widget is avoiding double content. So, if a post is in the main loop it won't ever show up in the widget's loop. I would recommend one of my featured post widgets and there you set both posts (main post and backup) to the same. Like that, always the same post would show up.

    The big disadvantage is, however that you would have to put it manually al the time.

    Most people want to avoid the same post showing all the time. That's why all my widgets avoid double content. If you can be patient, I would build in a feature that you simply can click an option in the widget to have double content.

    Greats,
    Stefan

    Thanks for the response. I understand that behavior, but that option would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Hi again, Jon!

    I built a checkbox to allow double content.

    Greats,
