Timetheif above has said that I do not have to set the widget to display every entry. This is why I tried to use the visibility option.
Can anybody set out the stages for me in simple terms please? I have read through all the links but still can't figure it out and I have been trying to do this since 10am. About to crack up!!!!
When I create a new post with the name of the venue and the date (ie Vichy 01/05/13 as the title. I assign a category to the post, for example racecourses 2013. Along the top of my theme, I managed to create what I wanted by creating a new menu which has drop downs.
On the RHS of my blog, I created another menu, using the menu widget but I cannot get this to display as a drop down. When I try to add a categories widget instead, it is showing all the racecourses and and all the other events. I don't want the racecources to show here as they are already in the menu along the top.
Is it possible to separate the showjumping events in a dropdown menu in the sidebar and not as it appears now like a giant list?
