    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.

    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).
