It used to… albeit badly. No way to set a pool of random artilces to show… but now? Just not working at all, its as if the widget has been deleted.
I am using DirectoryPress 7.13.
all we have is whats there, if there are no options for it then it will have been removed.
So…. solution will be to…… move to the new directory system which uses posts… so I can use widgets that are designed for posts?
Yes, that is an option of course.
But there are some easy and affordable quick fixes that can get you a lot of control over posts, post types, tags, categories, taxonomies as a filter and set your ”widgets” or even page displays by shortcode.
The plugin I use is called RECENT POSTS PRO and available on Code Canyon for $6.
You can see it on this domain in action. ALL the widgets and most of the site layout where posts / post types are used has been made with this plugin.
It’s worth $6 and makes a great add on for PP as you can easily access whatever, and display it wherever looking like you design (css options per instance available).
