Support » Fixing WordPress » “last post” and “categories” challenge

  • Resolved behappy


    Please goto

    If I click any “categories” on the right hand side, e.g “Travel Taiwan, Taiwan News,Taiwan Calling cards, Taiwan Hotels, Taiwan Flight, Taiwan Photo”
    and then I click any “last post” on the left hand side,
    it will show “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria”

    However, if I click “categories” Taiwan Visa,
    and then I click any “last post” on the left hand side,
    it is working fine

    Please advise
    Thanks !

  • Any expert know how to fix this ?
    which template should I need to look into ?

    1. It always helps if you type your domain name correctly 🙂

    2. What is the code you are using for those Lates posts? It seems it’s using a relative path, so when on a category archive (view) it appends the post ID or title to that URL, which obviously doesn’t work.

    sorry for the typo.I’m not quite sure if this is the code you’re looking for.It’s from sidebar.php
    edited, coded pasted

    My Travel Taiwan blog is

    What happens if you add a slash [/] in this line:

    echo "<li><a href='?p=$post->ID'>";
    like this:
    echo "<li><a href='/?p=$post->ID'>";

    WARNING: I am not a coder, so it might break your blog. Make a backup before you mess with the code.

    I’d suggest changing this line from the code above:

    echo "<li><a href='?p=$post->ID'>";


    echo "<li><a href='" . get_permalink($post->ID) . "'>";

    That’ll assure it uses the link to each post based on your Permalink settings.

    At least I was messing with the line that was causing the problem…

    moshu, your suggestion is the simplest (and least intrusive) one to go with. But I suspect most would probably want the links to display as they’ve set them.


    Thanks Kafkaesqui & Moshu!
    It’s working fine !
