    So sorry for the late response! I’ll look into this and see if I can fix it for you!

    If you want a quick fix, on line 171 it looks like

    if ( $instance['category'] != "none" ) {
    				$category = '&cat='.$instance['category'];
    			} else {

    if you ad in the $category_id = $instance[‘category’]; line, to make it look like

    if ( $instance['category'] != "none" ) {
    				$category_id = $instance['category'];
    				$category = '&cat='.$instance['category'];
    			} else {

    and then on line 203

    echo $before_title . '<a href="' . get_category_link($category) . '">'.$title.'</a>'.$after_title;

    Changing $category to $category_id

    echo $before_title . '<a href="' . get_category_link($category_id) . '">'.$title.'</a>'.$after_title;

    Then save it and upload it and you’ll be all set. This fix will be included into the next version which should be coming out beginning of december 🙂

    Thanks!

    I want to get my new home page launched before I release it and it’s just taking a little longer than expected. Shouldn’t be more than a couple weeks now, is there something I could help you with more immediately? You can email me at kaser [at] cssboss.com with any questions you might have.

    Thanks for this great plugin — I had same problem with category title link not working and your fix worked. Any way to get the link working if the widget is displaying a custom post type? (It does the same thing — just links to whatever page it’s already on.)

    Thanks again.

    This fix doesn’t seem to be working for me?!?
    I’m running 3.5.1 if that helps.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!
