[resolved] Is Offset possible? (5 posts)

    Can the flexible post widget be configured with an offset? I want the first six posts in a category to appear in the main content area with excerpt and thumbnails (they do), but instead of going to older posts on a separate page, I would like to display posts 7 and older in the sidebar widget with only the post titles.

    After installing Flexible Posts Widget in the primary widget area, it nicely displays (without excerpt or post--as I wanted) the same posts as are displayed (intentionally ) in the main content area (unintentionally duplicating the posts). How can I get it to start with post #7?
    Please see


    I'm trying to get the category index to display in WordPress on that page as it does in a Joomla installation with the same content

    Hi netingenuity,

    It's not currently possible with the plugin, but that's an excellent feature suggestion. I'll add it to the list of improvements I'm making. I should have a new version out in a week or two that will include that capability.

    Thanks for suggesting it!

    Great. I hope to hear soon that it is available. Thank you! This is really useful so that more posts will appear on the page without having to navigate to another page.

    I've added an offset option to widget. Please update to the latest version to see the added functionality. Cheers!

    WOW! Thank you so much. I hadn't checked to be notified that you posted a reply and didn't know about this update a week ago. Just now, I got the update. The offset is easy to use. Works like a charm.

    See sample on

    Now, I want to figure out how to hide the navigation in the main content area to the older posts.

    I really appreciate your help. Tonight I experimented with Query Posts Plugin and could not get it to display the desired category. Your plugin seems much easier to work with. Yeah!
