I’m having an issue with the category widgets duplicating. I’ve setup 7 categories just like the demo and each category has its own widget area. For some strange reason 2 of those categories are duplicating. For instance if I have a category called technology and one called news, the widget items that I setup for technology is automatically showing up for news as well. The news widget area is has nothing in it. Why would this be happening?January 15, 2011 at 11:23 pm #39288
I just realized that the two categories I’m having problems with have shared articles. What’s also weird is this is the case with my other categories, but the widgets aren’t duplicating for those items. Can I fix this?January 17, 2011 at 12:12 pm #39289
someone reported this problem a few weeks ago. James already informed Kriesi about this problem/bug. You can use widget logic: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/ as a workaround at the moment.January 18, 2011 at 8:03 pm #39290
Thanks Dude! I tried to use widget logic, but it didn’t work. I don’t think I was putting in the correct conditions. Could you post and example of what I should put in the widgets to make it work? I really appreciate your help!January 19, 2011 at 12:51 pm #39291
The WordPress Conditional Tags page should help you out with the code for specific pages, can you post the site URL and indicate which pages this problem is occuring on?

I tried the conditional tags, but when I plug in the code for the category that I want the widget to display it only shows a portion of it. For example I have 7 different categories and each category has its own widget area. Within that widget area I have specific ads that display. When articles that I created appear in multiple categories, the widget area gets overridden by the other category. If I tell widget logic to display the appropriate category it only displays one ad from that section instead of all of the contents in that widget area. Do you understand? I know it’s confusing! Can I email you the link? I don’t want to publish it publicly. Thanks for your help!
