Latest News by Category

Hey there, How to configure te latest news section due to categories? And how to limit the results by an amount of latest news of certain categories ?


  • Hi, @aikapan
    This feature to show posts of specific categories is not included in the plugin . However, you can do this but you need to add some code manually in a file.
    Follow the below steps:

    1) Install a plugin Reveal IDs

    2 Find the news-section.php file located in your plugin folder >> inc folder >> functions folder >>sections folder.
    Find the file.

    4) Now edit the file, at line no. 63 you will notice this below line
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'post','post__not_in'=>get_option("sticky_posts")) ; 

    In that line, add one more parameter & it become like this. Or replace the whole line with below line

    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'post','post__not_in'=>get_option("sticky_posts"), 'cat'=> '7,8') ; 

    You will notice only ,'cat'=>'7,8' is added. where the value 7 & 8 are two category Id which you want to show on homepage posts.
    Above plugin add one column which reveals ID like this
    This way you can customize feature to show only specific categories on homepage.
    Let me know if further need assistance.
