Support » Plugin: Widget Logic » [Plugin: Widget Logic] Switches Out Widgets and Titles but Not Content?

  • Here is my website I’m working on for reference so far. http://www.jonnyb.org Focusing on the Blog, Videos, and News sections.

    This is pretty stinking neat. It’s really close to what I’m looking for. I got it working so far with the Titles at least showing up per category page your on. But however….

    I can’t figure out the php hooks or calls to tell it to only show that categories posts or archives.

    For i.e.
    BLOG page should only have 1 Recent Post and 1 Archive.
    VIDEOS page should have at most 5 Recent Posts and Tons of Archives
    NEWS page should have 5 Recent Posts and at least 1/2 the amount of Archives as Videos does.

    But currently it still shows all posts and all archives and just changes out the titles. I know in reality it is changing out the widget which is perfect!!

    I tried the “wp_reset_query” fix as well. No go. I’m also using PageLines Platform Pro. Killer so far.

    I can’t figure out the “Widget Logic” for those. I’m trying this:

    Widget#1 Recent Blog Posts
    is_category(‘blog’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘blog’))
    Widget#2 Blog Archives
    is_category(‘blog’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘blog’))

    Widget#3 Recent News Posts
    is_category(‘news’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘news’))
    Widget#4 News Archives
    is_category(‘news’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘news’))

    Widget#5 Recent Video Posts
    is_category(‘videos’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘videos’))
    Widget#6 Video Archives
    is_category(‘videos’) || (is_single() && in_category(‘videos’))

    Thanks in advance!!

    “to only show that categories posts or archives”

    although you can use the widget_content filter to change the content of a widget, what you want to do here is probably too difficult to work as a filter. What you need (and for all I know they don’t exist) are widgets that are ‘context sensitive’, only showing posts of the category you are looking at. sorry
