Support » Theme: Spacious » TG Services – source pages will not reset

  • Hi there!

    I’ve been administering a site that I inherited five years ago. It’s time to make some changes (!) and I need to reset the page sources used by TG Services in the Business Bottom Sidebar (In The News section).

    The old source page contains shortcodes to display the latest 10 posts from each of three categories: Local & ACP; Regional & MVP; Big Picture, though the TG Services Widget is only showing 1. I have found where this last setting is held but it’s been six weeks since I’ve worked on this, so I’ll have to dig again to find it.

    Here is an example of the shortcodes:
    [ic_add_posts category=’local-acp’ showposts=’10’]

    I have created the new pages and post categories to supply them. I have a duplicate In The News page to hold the new shortcode references to the new categories. IT works fine. But the TG Services widget source won’t udpate. Either I get just the section titles and links to other pages (if I reference the new page), or it defaults to the original In The News source page (if I change the shortcodes there).

    Yes, I’ve deleted the existing instance of the widget and tried adding a new one…at different positions on the page (columns 1 or 3) etc. The widget always goes back to the original source material.

    I cannot find where this may have been hard coded by the author…I don’t see it in the Business Template Page Templates. And definitely not in Additional CSS.

    Happy to share additional code and links if that helps, but at this point, I don’t know what to share…

    I’m using Windows 10, Firefox and Chrome. Site is hosted on/by Kinsta, for whatever that’s worth.

    Many thanks in advance!!

  • Hi @dshaffer723,

    TG: Services widget is only used to display the pages created on your site. So, if you want to display anything other than them, then you can prefer them on using an alternate plugin instead.

    Thanks for you reply.

    Yes, I understand it uses pages from my site. My problem is that I cannot get TG Services to “let go” of a page it has been referencing since someone else built the site 4 years ago. I want it to reference a new page, but it will not work correctly, as described above.

    Is there any place where that reference could be hard coded, such that changing the reference from the WP interface would not work?


    Hi @dshaffer723,
    Please try using Page Links to Plugin, Hope this helps to solve your issue. Thanks.
