New in 4.7: Show all recent post, no category filtering

We think our widget has great features which are no match for the WordPress recent posts widget, and as there was always a possibility to hack the widget into showing all recent posts, we decided to just make it more organized by letting the user just specify an “All categories” in the category filter ti disable the category filtering all together.

Select more then one category

Is there a need to filter and select category with multi selection? We support such a feature in our premium widget Term and Category Based Posts Widget. We do this differences because we want a light weight widget with Category Posts Widget. In the most cases filtering and show posts from only one category fits all aims. On the other side our premium widget supports also custom post types. So the aim to select two or more categories, terms, what ever, … is more possible. So the filter UI from the premium widget can takes more time for configuration as the free version it does.

Custom Post Type, Custom Taxonomy and Tag

We want to offer with our pro plugin options for larger sites. For this purpose, WordPress has come up with something very exciting and has created a magnificent support that allows administrators and websites operators to adapt very large amounts of information on a website circumstances. With custom post types and custom taxonomies you can group, combine, abstract and tell posts together in more specific descriptions.

When Do I need a Custom Post Type?

Now please do not say you had no idea that you’re working for a long time with taxonomies. Yes, that’s true. WordPress comes with two default so called taxonomies, categories and tags are both Taxonomies. Now you can expand this with your own created custom Taxonomies. In the most ways categories will solve grouping posts. If you want to group a goup of posts than custom taxonomies will be a solution.

In return for grouping and classification, are the features such as sorting, displaying and arranging posts. In the first place for the website users. High priority is given including assignment and delivery of wealthy SEO content.

Custom Post Types are the way to distinguish posts, text and information. Give it a try and we guarantee you that the possibilities to build a WordPress site win amazing quality. Not only with the great variety of existing WordPress widgets and plugins.

Category Posts Widget Pro will climb to higher mountains

With the last version on WordPress.org (4.1.5, released at February 4th 2016) we announced to offer a pro version for Category Posts Widget. Our thoughts to build up a pro version had arisen rather short at the end of 2015.

The response for the widget was very good and we had a lot of work to cope the support requests and issues on GitHub.com. The many good ideas for new features inspires us to implement always more and more features. We redesigned the user interface in the backend with sliding accordion areas, add an CSS image crop for thumbnail dimension and want to build a very good posts widget. We can’t ignore all the response.

To cope our effort we made the decision to branch a pro version which is made for bigger WordPress websites and give the site administrators the opportunity to handle there posts with the latest WordPress scopes. We can therefore look forward to our work and promptly develop more new features.

At the moment we are working a lot for the tiptoppress.com website, all descriptions and last but no least at the PHP code for the pro widget. We answered on our own issues and questions and bring a lot of meetings behind us on slack.com and skype.com.

Now we are no longer far away from destination able to offer a Category Posts Pro widget, and are also a little proud. For the next week the release is scheduled and it looks well to hold the date also.
