Support » Plugin: Category Posts Widget » Empty posts

  • Resolved alpinisto


    Suddenly the Category Posts Widget is returning empty inside the

      . The category it is looking for has 390 posts in it, the title link shows an archive page full of posts, they are not custom post types. It worked fine yesterday, I don’t think I changed anything that would mess this up. I can’t see anything wrong in the code for the widget, and can’t figure out why everything inside the while loop is empty.

    I have changed category, changed it back, dropped another instance of the widget on, nothing works.

    Sorry for the late response. We’ve updated it to 4.1.0. Can you’ve a look with new version? The issue you faced could be from your hosting. Did you asked them about it?

    Hi, thanks for your note. I updated the plugin, but still not luck. I have looked into the actual Widget plugin code and can’t see anything wrong in there, or why the WP_Query would not populate. If I got to the actual category that’s supposed to show up there, it is fine (the archive page).

    Thanks for the update.

    Any other plugin has conflict? Did you tried deactivating other & checking for the issue?

    Mrinal- I figured it out. There was a posts_where filter applied to a loop earlier on the page that was filtering out for upcoming events, and affected all loops after that (and since there were no ‘upcoming’ posts in this other category it was empty). I added a remove_filter for the same posts_where just after that one loop and it restored the category posts in the footer.

    Thanks for your help, sorry to bother you with this clearly my oversight.

    No problem Alpinisto. Glad to know that you figured it out yourself.

    If you’ve any suggestion regarding this plugin, you can submit it here on Category Posts Widget Github repo (If possible with pull requests).
