Support » Plugin: Advanced Recent Posts » Having Issues with Pages Categories

  • Fibro Jedi


    Hi there,

    I’m running ARP on a blog I’ve run for years. For historical reasons the categories are actually for pages not posts.

    I’ve successfully used your shortcode generator on the home page to show all pages published within selected categories.

    However when I want to show this on a sub-page with one category I get ‘no recent posts’.

    Here’s the generated shortcode:
    [lptw_recentposts layout="grid-medium" post_type="page" link_target="self" category_id="same_as_post" fluid_images="true" height="400" featured_height="400" min_height="0" space_hor="10" space_ver="10" columns="3" order="DESC" orderby="date" posts_per_page="6" post_offset="0" reverse_post_order="false" exclude_current_post="false" color_scheme="dark" override_colors="false" background_color="#4CAF50" text_color="#ffffff" excerpt_show="true" excerpt_lenght="35" ignore_more_tag="false" read_more_show="true" read_more_inline="true" read_more_content="Read more →" show_date_before_title="true" show_date="true" show_time="true" show_time_before="false" show_subtitle="true" date_format="d/m/Y" time_format="H:i" no_thumbnails="show"]

    • Category ID is correct: 20
    • In my sidebar I have a ‘recent posts in this category’ which shows all 4 in that category.

    I think I’ve tried this before on other landing pages but failed. Site in question is

    But I’ll be removing the shortcode so people don’t get confused with a ‘no recent posts’ message.
