    I have the same problem. Main problem is we use custom templates & themes. But the plugin is not well coded, even if it overrides theme the listing sucks.

    I tried another plugin too, none of them works with Blog Templates. Only working with Default Template.

    Let see, maybe we need to code from scratch, but i can’t understand why these simple issue has no solution.

    We want to be able to categorize the posts with any template or theme. Currently it is calling WP_Query in same place with templates, so either plugin or template works.. 🙁

    You can use the “post_type” parameter in the shortcode to use it with a custom post type. Let’s say you had a post type called “listings”. This would show the most recent listings:

    [display-posts post_type=”listings”]

    kerso, it sounds like your current theme is interfering with WordPress queries. If none of these types of plugins work, there’s something wrong in your theme. I recommend you hire a developer to clean up your current theme, or switch to a better coded one.

    This is a double post which I withdraw.
    I leave it here for the sake of purity, however I transfered my question to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-posts-shortcode-on-x-the-theme?replies=1

    Hi Bill,

    hope it’s ok if I come in on this one.

    I am using X The Theme which comes with their own post_type="x-portfolio". Your nice plugin shows the posts alright!

    The portfolio(-arctiles) are categorized in porfolio-categories. Whenever I state something like category="book" I get no result at all.

    Is there any way to filter these kind of posts? To display simply any recent post just isn’t good enough.

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Luxar
