    Hi There!

    I’ve just started using WPSP Pro for the first time and I’ve noticed that if you select ‘category’ as the taxonomy it only displays categories with posts.

    I’ve got some categories I want to assign to wpshowposts ready for when posts get added to them in the future.

    Is this possible?

    I agree – we’ll be changing that in the next free version.

    If you’re comfortable editing code, you can remove &hide_empty=1 here: https://github.com/tomusborne/wp-show-posts/blob/1.1.3/admin/ajax.php#L41

    You can see the change we made here: https://github.com/tomusborne/wp-show-posts/commit/fdfe13b25893974a63a8fe0decf2672c85089540

    Thanks Tom – it’s easy when you know where to look!

    I’ve applied that change but it’s still not displaying the empty category.

    It may be a caching issue on the server. I’ll flush it and try again in the morning and let you know how I get on!

    Hi Tom,

    After looking this morning the issue still hasn’t gone away.
    Any ideas?

    That’s strange.

    What happens if you change it to: &hide_empty=0

    Hi Tom,

    That worked a charm!

    To confirm this is what line 41 now looks like in ajax.php.

    $terms = get_terms( sanitize_key( $_POST[ 'taxonomy' ] ), 'orderby=count&hide_empty=0' );

    Perfect – I’ll get that changed in the next version 🙂

    Thanks!
