    hi tom

    i started working with wp show posts pro plugin today. currently i am showing home page with sticky posts and the recent posts. i am now using the shortcode and placing it in the elements from generatepress theme.

    1. when i select the inside_container hook, i get to see the category posts but when scrolled below i also get to see the sticky and latests posts. how do i disable this. i also don’t want to create a static home page and a blog page.
    2. secondly i want to show the category name on top or below and show 4 to 6 posts from that category. how i do i go about doing this. basically something like a magazine style layout on home page where 4 to 6 posts from various categories are displayed.

    Hi there,

    I’m not too sure what you mean. Where are you adding the WPSP posts? On the blog page? Category pages?

    WPSP isn’t meant to replace the regular category loop from the theme – it’s meant as a way to show lists of posts on pages etc..

    Let me know 🙂

    Can you link me to the page so I can see the issue?

    i disabled the wp show posts code on the home page. for now i am only showing recent posts on the home page. is it possible with wp show pro to get a magazine style layout on home page? but i do not want to create a separate static home page.

    WPSP would need to be added to a separate static home page.

    Can I see an example of the magazine style you’re going for?

    There’s not an easy way to do that as of right now, unfortunately. However, it’s an option I’d like to add to the plugin.

    thanks tom. will wait and then implement whenever you add this option in the wp show posts plugin.
