Support » Plugin: Category Posts Widget » Thumbnail: Default and hover. More than one category.

  • Resolved LarsHdg


    Very nice plugin – thanks!

    2 minor issues:
    1) I can’t define a default Thumbnail? Clicking on the button does nothing.
    2) Set hover action for Thumbnail doesn’t work?

    And – is there a way to select more than one category for a list of posts (not all)?

    Thanks 🙂

    Do you really use the latest version 4.7.2? We had released some bugfixes in this version.

    Multiselection for categories is supported in the premium version Term and Category based Posts Widget:
    You can try it as localhost installation:

    Thanks for feedback.

    According to the Plugin status it is the 4.7.2 release ??

    And which WordPress version, which Theme and which PHP version do you use?

    WordPress 4.7.3 with Scalia Child tema.
    Running PHP version: 7.0.17

    We have no problems with WordPress. 4.7.3 and PHP 7.0.17.
    What is the problem in depth? Can you make screenshots?
    Maybe its only the handling you use the widget? You can read more on our documentation here:

    Scalia Child Theme is a premium one?
    But I can’t imagine it depends on the Theme.

    The problem is straight out that when I select the button for changing the default Thumbnail, nothing happens?
    And when selecting an Action for hover, nothing happens in the post list; no hover effect on those thumbnails which are displayed.

    Hard to make screenshots of “no action”… 😉

    Yes, Scalia is a Premium

    Please try to use for a test to activate another Theme, e.g. a WordPress default Theme like Twenty Sixteen.

    Another option is to uninstall and reinstall the widget. Settings for the widget are lost with this test.
    If you can make a localhost installation it will be more secure to install and reinstall the widget.
    But at the moment I mean there is an installation error, which should be so fix.

    One thing more to check is to see if there are JS errors (or any others that might be related) in the browser console.

    As for the hover issue, that is pure CSS and the easiest thing is probably to just check if the css is generated and applied correctly. Can you share a URL of a page in which we will be able to look for it?

    Thanks for feedback and reaching out.

    Unfortunately I can’t give you a link to the page at thi spoint, since it’s behind a password protected area for some member pages. But your input gave a hint for me to investigate.

    And I have now acquired the pro license for the extra functionality; but can’t active that due to a “license issue” apparently..?!? Support addressed at the issue.
