    Hi there – when I add the recent posts widget to the sidebar it works great but when I check the front page only check box it no longer shows on the front page (home page) like I thought it was supposed to (I just want this on the home page only) what can I do to fix this?? thanks, Megan

    Megan are you using the widget conditions?

    Hello Mark – I am using the custom query post_type<>post_listing&posts_per_page=8
    the widget shows just fine if I do not have Front Page Only checked (shows on all pages) but if I check Front Page Only and save then it doesn’t show on the Front Page as expected – Thanks, Megan

    I just realized this is NOT the recent posts widget, but the WLT Recent Listings widget that I am using that disappears when the Front Page Only checkbox is checked. I did now try the Recent Posts widget but it does not show the associated image thumbs – how do I get the images to show on that??? thanks, megan

    OK So even if I leave the custom query on the default, on the [WLT] Recent Listings widget if I check the Front Page Only check box, the widget completely disappears off the front page – kind of opposite of what I want. thanks, Megan
