    Hi,

    I want the Recent Posts sidebar widget to include / exclude the same categories as specified in the Blog section of the inFocus Theme settings - however it currently list sall categories regardless of whether i have specified to exclude them or not, which is strange as the "blog" page does exclude the categories specified in the inFocus Theme settings.

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks.

    Hi MiguelGonzalez,

    Are you using WordPress's default "Recent Posts" widget or the "inFocus - Recent Post" widget?

    Currently WordPress's default "Recent Posts" widget doesn't support the excluding of categories.

    don't worry found it by de-activating and re-activing the child-theme of inFocus i'm using. How can i style it so it's just a list of text link s(like the Wp widget) called "Latest News"?

    thanks.

    Hi MiguelGonzalez,

    To style the "inFocus - Recent Post" widget to look like the WordPress default would be a very involved process. Try the following plugin and see if it achieves the function you're looking for:
