Support » Plugin: Per Page Menus and Featured Posts IntelliWidget » How to show sub-categories in parent category page

  • Resolved houseofstrauss


    Exploiting the idea of ‘one widget for many’ I’m trying to use IntelliWidget to show sub-categories of a parent category. (Only visible if parent has sub-cats) Currently I’m using LSC plugin that works, except The problem with LSC is that it ONLY shows in the category page, ie; disapears on posts of the category. That means we lose the widget on post pages. I would like to re-use IW if possible, as it’s more f;exible. Of course the problem is it seems there are only settings for widgets/pages/posts but not actual category pages.

    Have I missed something? can we do this? Or is it a possible future feature?

    Taxonomies are currently the weak link with IntelliWidget. You can filter posts by a single category (or multiple categories if you use the shortcode). You can also create post-specific widgets, but not taxonomy page-specific or other archive-specific widgets. (The site-wide intelliwidgets do work as advertised on these pages, however.)

    A future release will completely overhaul the way IW handles taxonomies, but that is a lower priority than other features right now.

    If you have something specific in mind, we could discuss developing a customized version …

    Yep, it was the category specific widget I wanted. So if I wanted a parent category to show its siblings in a widget, can the site-wide widget do that.. and how do I configure that?

    Thanks for your very quick response above. Much appreciated. 🙂

    Unfotunately IW does not query taxonomies at all. It only uses them to filter posts. I have put this on our list of enhancements (real requests take priority over what we think would be neat).

    Check back soon for updates!


    Ok, thanks
