[Plugin: Posts per Cat] Auto filtering by category of currently displayed post (3 posts)

    I would like to ask if it would be possible to add a feature that would allow to list only the posts of a selected category - in the category archive page and the single post page.
    This would mean that the post-per-cat script would list only posts of the same category as the currently displayed post.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    Do you also think about solution for posts that belongs to multiple categories?

    Thanks for support and questions!

    Hum, good question.
    I not sure about a solution because in the blog I'm doing I'm just using one category for each post. I prefer to use tags for multiple keywords.

    In post-per-cat last version you can already include and exclude categories by their ID and filter out parent categories, so that's already a help.

    The wordpress version I'm using (2.7.1) has no way to say, for each post, which is the most relevant category. If this was possible then it could be used as a way to filter post listing in the sidebar: you could choose to list posts for all the categories in currently displayed post or just posts from the most relevant category of the currently displayed post.

    Creating post-per-cat options for each post seems a bit too much of a trouble.
    So the most straight forward solution would be to list posts in all the categories the currently displayed post belongs to.

    Well, I'll try to give it a bit more thought.
