[resolved] Old posts not coming off custom sidebar when changing category of post (4 posts)

    Posts made under the specific category ‘Public Programs’ are to appear on the right hand side custom sidebar (as shown on webpage below).


    Once a program or event is finished, I’ve changed their category from 'Public Programs' to (for example) “Past Programs – 2014” so that they will stop appearing on the custom sidebar on this specific page.

    However, I cannot get them to come off the custom sidebar, and have tried everything! Could you please offer some advice on this, I’m sure it’s something simple. Thank you.

    Hi @bmcc2012,

    I hope you are well today and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Could you please tell me which widget / plugin are you using to display posts related to specific category so that i can troubleshoot it?

    You can try using the widgets provided by following plugins.


    Note: Some of the above listed plugins are outdated and may have compatibility issues so fully test it on your development site before using it on production site.

    Hi - I'm fairly certain that it's the 'Category posts' widget. Now that I've looked at the plugin, and it's two years old - could that be the issue that I'm experiencing now?

    Hi @bmcc2012,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes the Category Posts Widget plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

    Could you please try using other plugins and let me know whether it works fine for you or not?

    Best Regards,
