Support » Plugin: Category Posts Widget » Duplicating Prev Next Post PAGES w/Sidebar

  • thumbslinger


    My client wants to see the “Older entries” and “older and next entries’ in the sidebar below the teaser headlines AS WELL AS where it currently is, after the top 10 shown posts.

    I’ve been trying to define a shortcode function in the functions.php of the child theme but though I generate no errors, nothing ever shows up.

    I need to duplicate that functionality in the side bar. Any ideas?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Tue shortcode couldn’t be used in PHP code. Only in the WordPress content.

    We hadn’t that request very less so we decided yet not to work on it.

    Couldn’t you use only the content feature and place the shortcode to the Widget Area?



    I am defining what the shortcode is supposed to mean in the functions.php so that I can use my custom shortcode in the text.

    If one wishes a shortcode like [bumblebee] then you have to tell WordPress what [bumblbee] is supposed to do so that has to be done in php. Then, you can use [bumblebee] in content.

    My issue is that I want to have the navigation through pages (not just single posts) in both areas; beneath the default 10 entries that show and in the sidebar.

    The theme being used is an older version of Divi and I think that is the issue. All the stuff people from Elegant Themes suggested didn’t work either. Making a shortcode for a dynamic year in the footer worked fine so it is not the idea of making a shortcode, it must be an issue of re declaring a function already defined.
