    Hi Tom,

    Came across this while setting up for a tutorial on WPSP.

    I have two WPSP lists, both using a category, with one of them to be used for a “featured post”. On the home page, I used the WPSP shortcode for the “blog” category to be displayed underneath the “featured” category shortcode. So far, so good.

    What happens is that I added a WPSP widget to the Right Sidebar and Footer 1 (using GeneratePress for the theme, of course :)) and selected the “featured” list from the widget. Still doing fine, shows up nicely.

    However, when one selects that post and ends up on the single post page, the widgets then display the “Sorry, no posts were found.” message. Tried using a tag instead, but the same thing. Perhaps it’s “just the way it works” ??

    Cheers!

    Hi Lyle,

    So when you view the single post which is “featured”, the feature post (one you’re viewing) no longer displays in the widget?

    Let me know 🙂

    Yes, that is correct. Whichever post is selected to be shown in the WPSP widget, regardless of the tag or category, results in the “error” when that particular post is the “single post”.

    I think this might be standard behavior to prevent WP from imploding (showing a specific post inside that very post, could cause a loop).

    I’ll play with it to see if I can find a workaround 🙂

    Thanks Tom. I was wondering that sort of thing myself but thought that as that post is being displayed in the right sidebar in the WPSP widget, that it would be “out of the loop”.
