I have been testing everything to work around this issue. I am not a developer, so please excuse me if I did this myself.
I have added some widgets of WPP to my site, trying to show the most popular posts in different categories.
I have put in the category ID for posts to be shown, and the same with minus for categories not to be shown (26,-31 etc)
Its working in the way that the only desired category is shown, but the total number of posts goes down. I have set it up to show 4 posts, and if the category only has 2 posts inside the total top 4, those are the only posts shown, meaning that the widget only shows 2 posts.
Is this the way it should be? Or am I doing something wrong?
Any help is much appreciated.
