Support » Plugin: List category posts » List posts by TAG regardless of category
4 years ago
Is it possible to list all the posts that have the same tag, regardless of what category they are in ?
I tried [catlist tags=”tag name”] but that doesn’t bring any posts up…
Likewise with the sidebar widget — the only option is to choose a category… just hoping there’s a way to get posts by their tag…
I’ve got a workaround – if I include ALL my categories by ID (it’s a long list but not too long), then I can get the plugin to retrieve posts with a specific tag using the shortcode.
However, in the widget I don’t see an option to get posts with a particular tag.
Am I missing something?? Can I add something with PHP or something else to make the widget have the TAG option??
I’ve got a workaround to the widget not including a TAG option.
I installed a plugin so I can use shortcodes in text widgets (this can also be done by adding two lines to functions.php – google it to get the code).
Now I can put the same type of shortcode call in the widget as I’m using in my pages and posts.
