    We have a News website. With a big volume of dayly posts publications.

    Some news (posts) are tagged as “Featured” or “Important”, in order to show them in Homepage. For this, we have a WPShowPost list which shows only the News (posts) tagged as “Featured”

    Below, We want to show, with another WPShopost list, the rest of the News (posts) that are not tagged as “Featured”.

    But currently, it seems that WP Show Post only allows to exclude Posts by ID (not exclude by category or tag)

    So, How can We do this?

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    There are 2 ways of doing this. In both, we need to use a PHP snippet.

    One is to include only the things you want by filtering it.

    Example:

    add_filter('wpsp_query_args',function( $args, $settings ){
    	if ( 1699 === (int) $settings['list_id'] ) {
    		$args['tax_query'] = array(
    			'relation' => 'OR',
    			array(
    				'taxonomy' => 'category',
    				'field'    => 'slug',
    				'terms'    => array( 'campaigns','project-updates' ),
    			),
    			array(
    				'taxonomy' => 'post_tag',
    				'field'    => 'slug',
    				'terms'    => array( 'sample-tag-1' ),
    			),
        	);
        }
    	return $args;
    },10,2);

    Just make sure you change the values.

    Replace 1699 with the ID of your WPSP list. Replace ‘campaigns’ and ‘project-updates’ with your category slugs and replace ‘sample-tag-1’ with your tag slug.

    Another way is by actual exclusion:

    Example.

    add_filter( 'wpsp_query_args', function( $args, $settings ) {
        if ( 1821 === (int) $settings['list_id'] ) {
    		$args['category__not_in'] = array(1,8,49);
    		$args['tag__not_in'] = array(38);
    		
            var_dump($args);
        }
    
        return $args;
    }, 10, 2 );

    Replace 1699 with the ID of your WPSP list.

    Note: If that doesn’t work, you may have to update to this version:
    https://wpshowposts.com/wp-show-posts-1-2-0/

    Or try Tom’s suggestion here which is the shortcode args filter way.
