Support » Plugin: Content Views - Post Grid & List for WordPress » Simple list of Categories

    I wanted to create a side bar on my blog that shows the blog titles under certain categories. I want to model it on the page referenced above (https://www.chicagotraveler.com/updates/). Is there a way to achieve the same formatting as that page? I think it was done with a different plug in but I would rather not add one more plugin to my already long list.

    BTW. I have a license for the Content Views Pro in case the free version won’t do it.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello,
    Thank you for contacting us.

    1. with Content Views free version
    You need to create different views for different categories.

    Then add a Text widget to the Sidebar, then insert:

    
    CATEGORY NAME 1 HERE
    [pt_view id=VIEWID_1]
    
    CATEGORY NAME 2 HERE
    [pt_view id=VIEWID_2]
    
    CATEGORY NAME 3 HERE
    [pt_view id=VIEWID_3]
    
    

    The more categories to show, the more views need to be created.

    2. with Content Views Pro
    You create only 1 View with this instruction: https://docs.contentviewspro.com/display-term-as-heading/

    Then in the Text widget on the Sidebar, then insert:

    
    [pt_view id=VIEWID cat=CATEGORY_SLUG_1]
    [pt_view id=VIEWID cat=CATEGORY_SLUG_2]
    [pt_view id=VIEWID cat=CATEGORY_SLUG_3]
    

    For further Pro support, Please contact us here.

    Best regards,
