can someone explain to me how this is supposed to work? i have posts with multiple categories selected. for these category archives, i cant show unique widgets. its just showing the generic one.
news is a top level category with nested categories under it. i have widgets that should be displayed on this category archive. i have a categories widget with the title ‘Categories Test’ and a text widget.
i have read some of the support forum posts re multiple categories and showing widgets. ive downloaded widget logic and have tried setting multiple parameters using conditional logic. none are working.
in the widget logic box…do i have to set an array with every possible combination of categories under news for this to show up?
is there a way to make this work without using widget logic plugin?
its showing up on the home page
but not the news archive
if you use more than one category for a post the widget will only show up for the first one. So if you want to cover all combinations you must use widget logic. You must create all widgets in the “Display Everywhere” widget area and afterwards select which category ids should display the widget…
thanks for that. it worked. i didnt have it in the ‘display everywhere’ area. once i did that its working. cheers. support here is great and newscast is a very cool theme.
