Support » Plugin: Recent Posts From Each Category » How to use separate shortcodes for separate categories?

  • Resolved article89


    Hi, I’m very happy with your plugin. I have a question though, I have a website with 3 different communities. Each community has it own category, and I need to use the shortcode once in each community, just different categories to be displayed. Each page should only display its own category. I used the shortcode for category 1 and it worked just fine. Then I went back in and changed to include only category 2. Saved and copied the shortcode. Pasted into the page I only want to display posts from category 2 but the shortcode keeps displaying the posts from category 1.

    Is it possible to do what I’m trying?

    Thanks in advance.

    Please post your both shortcode here and confirm that you are using latest version of plugin, so that i can assist you with this issue…


    Plugin Version 1.4 | WordPress Version 3.4.2

    [mycatlist cat_length=’20’ post_length=’20’ excerpt_length=’70’ title_only=’no’ thumbnail=’yes’ read_more=’Read More…’ new_window=’no’ posts=’1′ order_by=’name’ exclude_cat=’summit-square,sunnyside’ include_cat=’kings-grant-2′ child_cats=’no’ columns=’1′ limit=’1′ order_by_type=’asc’]

    I have 3 categories and 3 separate corresponding pages:

    1 – summit-square
    2 – sunnyside
    3 – kings-grant-2

    The sample above, for example, is supposed to show “kings-grant-2” posts and exclude “summit-square” and “sunnyside” but it only displays “sunnyside” posts. This is true for the 3 categories, all three shortcodes created specifically with parameters for each page still pull “sunnyside” category only.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    exclude_cat and include_cat both should be given category ids and not the slug… to find category id, go to posts->categories, click on edit link for the category and you can see the id in url in browser….
