I am currently using the Newscast Sidebar News Widget and I have it set to Display Everywhere Right and to only show the “News” category. The problem I am having is that the News widget is displaying all categories instead of just the “News” category. How can I fix this?
Here’s a link to my site… http://www.cjpwworld.com.
Thanks for your help.
I’m aware of this problem – I’ve tested it myself and it seems to be a bug. Someone posted this problem some time ago in this thread: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/categories-will-not-hide
I’ll talk to Kriesi…
Thanks for the help Dude. However the link you posted is not the same problem that I am having. My problem is with the Sidebar News Widget not the slider. In the link, the OP has a problem excluding categories, my problem is similar but more to do with including. Any suggestions on a workaround?
Hi, I looked into it – you need to use the category ID not the name for the Newscast Sidebar News Widget. If you’re using more than 1 category separate them by comma like this:
Dude, thanks. It’s funny, I just figured that out when you posted this. Sorry for the mix-up. It’s working the way it should now.
I have exactly the same problem. But after having entered the categories numbers, it does not work though…
Maybe, I didn’t pick the right numbers. Where do you find the categories IDs ?

I have found it ! When you click on a category you have to look in your browser ! Sorry for this useless post. Thanks for this great theme though !
