Support » Plugin: Advanced Post List » [Plugin: Advanced Post List] Configure plugin for category archives

  • I have searched everywhere, but I haven’t found (yet) how to configure the plugin so to make it show only posts related with the category archive it is being showed.

    In my case, I would like that when in the category archive page devoted to “planes”, the plugin would show only the posts related with that category. So far, when a category archive page is being selected, I only managed to make it show posts from *all* categories. I don’t know how to filter out the entries of unrelated categories.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yea, I’ve thought about setting it up for that, but when coding it all up, I was mainly aiming to create a hierarchy with post types and taxonomies. Basically get the hard work done first and get it all fine tuned.

    What I will do though. Inside the accordion that holds the post types, the first one will become ‘Any’ in a sense, and will hold all your taxonomies. It’s just that I wanted to get the hardest part of the plugin coded up first.

    The only solution, is to go through each post type and selected them.

    Sorry, I didn’t get the point.

    If I create a preset for each category I’ve got, how can I link each preset to the right category? Right now I’m using a WP template that allows me to insert shortcodes – like to ones used by APL – inside a single layout for archives. But that does work only for ALL categories – I cannot create different versions for each category.

    Any idea?

    Ok, now I’m a lil lost. Are you talking about calling the preset post list based on a category? Or using a single page/layout and displaying posts inside the preset post list, and it is determined by the current categories of that page?

    OK, I will try to make an example. I’ve got posts like these:

    Post 1 – Plane category A
    Post 2 – Plane category B
    Post 3 – Plane Category C
    Post 4 – Plane Category A

    I can configure the default category layout using shortcodes, and I tried to find a way to use APL so that when I click the breadcrumb labelled “Category A” – as being showed inside posts of the same category – the resulting Category Archive page displays ONLY the following entries:

    Post 1
    Post 4

    … And at the same time, when I click the breadcrumb labelled “Category B” the resulting Category Archive page should display ONLY the following entry:

    Post 2

    … And so on. Please note that I can configure only a single/default layout for all categories archives with my WP template.

    OK – found it.
    To make the category archive pages display the right entries related to the same category only, I must select ONLY the “Include Terms” option on the APL category panel.

    Yea, I was about to say, there is an ‘Include Terms’ function setting. I just wanted to make sure it fit the scenario.
