I’d like to post a random post from a single category in my sidebar. (Like a quotes widget, but from a category.) Failing that, I’d like to post the most recent post from a single category in my sidebar. (If you’re curious, it’s a category with relevant book reviews.)
I think I’m about ready to learn to hack a plug-in, if anybody wants to coach me through it. 🙂 I have the Category Recent Posts widget, but it only shows the title of the posts. I want the whole thing, including image.
I’d like to post a specific post in the sidebar. Can I use this plugin if I:
create a special category
assign the post I want to that category
assign no other posts to that category
to change the post I change the categories on the posts so the new post I want is the only post in the category
Is there another plugin which will do this for me?
I am going to try my idea to see if it will work.
