are you saying that for a category, you just want to list the post titles? Take a look at the WordPress Category Posts plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...ategory-posts/

hi juggledad,

the plugin seems not working.
I added this code

<?php wp_cat_posts(4); ?>

at the page editor but only the title of the page is displayed.
or maybe I miss something. hmm...

ok, here is what you do

1) Create a page called Category test
when you publish the page, make note of the address in your browser window. It will be something like
HTML Code:
http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin/page.php?action=edit&post=248
Write down the number at the end, in tis case '248' that is the page number and don't worry if you only have 3 pages, a page is really a special type of post so the numbering is not sequential.

2) go to ATO->Style & edit CENTER COLUMN->The LOOP and find the line
HTML Code:
<?php bfa_post_bodycopy('<div class="post-bodycopy clearfix">','</div>'); ?>
insert the following right after that line
HTML Code:
<?php if (is_page(248)) {wp_cat_posts(4); } ?>
So now, when ever you are displaying page 248, it will list all the items in category '4' on the page.

Hope this helps

Hi there, I'm looking this option but for one that my customer.

In this case my customer has installed the wishlist plugin. I need that show post in the active category. All the plugins that I installed, (included comment in this thread), do his work, but don't work for me, becaus always show all the category.

With default category widget "Categories", I can show the active category for a user rol, but this don't show to me the post on it. I even thought in the ability to show the last 5 or 10 post.

I use Atahualpa theme

Anywhere here know how can I do this?

Valentin

Jughead,

Can you use this for tags too? If so, would the code be (saying the page # I'm using is the same in your example above):

<?php if (is_page(248)) {wp_tag_posts(4); } ?>

The original poster was using a plugin for categories. If you have a plugin for tags that defines the function 'wp-tags-posts()' then sure you can use it.

Gotcha.

Installed List Category Posts plugin I found referenced elsewhere in forum - probably by you and other admin's herein. Worked great, and the best part was I didn't have to alter the AT code at all. Just had to create a directory under wp-content/themes/atahualpa/ called list-category-posts and place a default template file provided with the plugin to be able to use the shortcode below in posts, pages, anywhere really.

[catlist id=-3 tags=Netflix template=default excludeposts=1218 thumbnail=yes]

Just had to tweek the template so the thumbnails and text lined up the way I wanted, but since one can use the default.php file to create as many other template files as they wish, I was able to design a few different views for different pages.

You got me going on the right road and I ended up where I wanted to be. Thanks for that.
