[Resolved] [Plugin: Flexible Posts Widget] Multiple taxonomies

  • I love this plugin and the last update fixed any problems I had with the plugin, except for one: I would love to be able to select multiple taxonomies or post types.

    I am currently using one Flexible Posts Widget for every post type, but what I would like is to display the most recent posts from those post types and the ‘post’ post type on my frontpage. Right now it seems like I can only select one at a time.

    What would be nice, too, if there was a way to only include specified categories or tags or to exclude categories or tags.

    Thanks!

    Hi Naz,

    Setting up multiple post-type support should be simple enough. I’ll add that to the wish list. I should also be able to add multiple terms from the same taxonomy.

    Unfortunately, setting up complex queries using multiple taxonomies & terms or taxonomies/terms and post-types together probably won’t happen. There are too many intricacies for a simple widget to handle when creating these types of queries.

    A possible solution for this (and the request to exclude categories/tags) would be to create a category or tag that is used exclusively to display items in the widget. If you’d prefer to not include such a category or tag on the front-side, you could also create a non-public custom taxonomy & term(s) to use specifically for this purpose. This new taxonomy could then be added to any post type(s) and FPW could then get posts from that taxonomy & term regardless of their post-type and any other taxonomy & term mappings the posts may have.

    Hopefully that helps point you in the right direction and thanks the feedback.

    Hello,

    Thanks for adding this feature. I really appreciate it.

    And thanks for the very helpful suggestions!

    Sarah,

    The plugin already supports custom post types. You can get posts by a specific post type or by taxonomy & term.

    Sarah,

    As the plugin documentation states, you can create you own templates with whatever information you’d like to display from each post. See the section titled “To use a customized HTML output template” here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flexible-posts-widget/installation/
