I had asked this in the Plugins area and no one has responded. I am trying to have the CONTENT of a daily "Confession of the Day" post appear in the sidebar widget so that it is visible regardless of what page someone is one.
At first I thought the "Featured Content" Widget would do this, but I'm having no luck. I don't want to "slide" a gallery of photos, but I'd like to have the text content.
"Featured Post" seems to force a specific post to appear, rather than allow the content to change daily.
I tried setting up the Featured Content widget, to include latest posts and only choose "1" post, include the Category I want it choosing from "4" (the ID number of the category I want it taking the last post from), etc.
All that appears is a blank white widget box.
If this is what I should use, can someone steer me correctly? If there's a better plugin or widget to do what I'm trying to do can someone let me know?
I see sidebars with snippets of text from posts all the time - how is this done?
When I search for "snippets" I get a bunch of stuff having to do with code snippets.
Please can someone point me to how to do this or a plugin I should use?
Thanks so much!
