I am a bit stuck trying to create a custom widget on a sidebar for retrieving information from a specific jobs plug-in. The widget can be hardcoded onto the sidebar, it's my only work around with this theme as the theme authors seem to have left out the normal sidebar widget area.
I know the slug name and taxonomy but cannot seem to retrieve any data, for this example I am going to call the slug "featured-jobs".
The php I am using is below, I am simply trying to get the post titles and excerpts for the moment in a list as a proof of concept to style later but I am not sure what I have missed or where my error is:
<?php global $post; $args = array( 'numberposts' => 5, 'category_name' => 'featured-jobs' ); $posts = get_posts( $args ); foreach( $posts as $post ): setup_postdata($post); echo "<div>"; echo "<?php the_title() ?>"; echo "<?php the_excerpt() ?>"; echo "</div>"; endforeach; ?>
