    It’s possible you have no attached feature image to your posts and select the option in the Filter panel > “Exclude posts which have no thumbnail”?

    It is possible you have posts to show and not delete all after place the widget?
    Please try the Filter > Category “All” if another category have posts.

    It’s an understanding problem and the doc can help you:

    The option in the Filter panel > “Exclude posts which have no thumbnail” is unchecked.

    I changed it to Filter > Category “All” and it did show the posts from “Uncategorized” but it’s still not showing the posts from “Featured”. I did make sure that the category for the “Featured” is created and has 3 posts in it.

    Mmmh, have you other widgets which you can deactivated?

    In some cases this helps.

    Then please try to deactivate, delete and make a clean new install with our widget again?

    Your widget was the only one activated. I also did delete and installed the widget again but it’s not working… I even created a new category, assigned a post to it and then, changed the filter to that category but it’s still not showing… The theme I’m using is a child theme of the Monday theme:

    and here’s the documentation:

    I get it, but I don’t think it’s our widget, because in the last issues it depends on side effects.

    It is all I can say at the moment. Please try my proposal above?

    Best make a new clean WordPress installation and make step by step with other widgets what works and what is the issue.

    We are interested in, why there is a relation.
    Possible is a filter set by another widget.

    Last is to change the used Theme?

    Then we have to check the options of the widget.
    You checked the show Thumbnail option?

    I think I narrowed down the problem. What’s not displaying are the posts from the Custom post types that I created. I’m looking in that right now…

    I already narrowed down the problem. It’s not the theme, or your widgets. It’s the Custom Post Types. Here’s the problem I’m trying to resolve in WordPress development:

    So far, some articles I’ve read said that when I register custom post type, I will also need to register taxonomies. I’m trying to figure how to do that in functions.php, but I thought it’s already registered when I added 'taxonomies' => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ), in my Custom Post Type:

    // Register Custom Post Type
    function tvs_post_type() {
    	$labels = array(
    		'name'                  => _x( 'TV', 'Post Type General Name', 'text_domain' ),
    		'singular_name'         => _x( 'TV', 'Post Type Singular Name', 'text_domain' ),
    		'menu_name'             => __( 'TV', 'text_domain' ),
    		'name_admin_bar'        => __( 'Post Type', 'text_domain' ),
    		'archives'              => __( 'Item Archives', 'text_domain' ),
    		'parent_item_colon'     => __( 'Parent TV:', 'text_domain' ),
    		'all_items'             => __( 'All TVs', 'text_domain' ),
    		'add_new_item'          => __( 'Add New Post', 'text_domain' ),
    		'add_new'               => __( 'Add New Post', 'text_domain' ),
    		'new_item'              => __( 'New Item', 'text_domain' ),
    		'edit_item'             => __( 'Edit Post', 'text_domain' ),
    		'update_item'           => __( 'Update Post', 'text_domain' ),
    		'view_item'             => __( 'View Post', 'text_domain' ),
    		'search_items'          => __( 'Search Posts', 'text_domain' ),
    		'not_found'             => __( 'No posts found', 'text_domain' ),

    		'items_list_navigation' => __( 'Items list navigation', 'text_domain' ),
    		'filter_items_list'     => __( 'Filter items list', 'text_domain' ),
    	$args = array(
    		'label'                 => __( 'TV', 'text_domain' ),
    		'description'           => __( 'tv information pages', 'text_domain' ),
    		'labels'                => $labels,
    		'supports'              => array( 'title', 'editor', 'excerpt', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'comments', 'custom-fields', ),
    		'taxonomies'            => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ),
    		'hierarchical'          => false,

    Hey. I think I figured it out. Your widget is probably based on the WP_Query which has default post type set to post. Therefore, it was unable to display the posts I’ve created in Custom Post types…

    You can try our premium widget on localhost which supports Custom Post Types:
