Twenty Eleven Widget for Recent Posts

  • Author
  • #746677


    I would like to make a suggestion to the Twenty Eleven developers for the theme.
    There is a great widget called Twenty Eleven Ephemera where you can show the different post types like Quotes, Asides etc.
    Firstly I would like to be able to choose which Post Type is used in that Widget (and if it had categories to choose from also, that would make it even more flexible). .
    Secondly I would like to be able to show all Posts, or Posts with a particular category, but NOT including Ephemera Post Types (ie only standard posts).

    At the moment there is no way to show only Standard Posts or Recent Standard Posts in a widget, because all the Ephemera Post Types are included in the Widget.

    Hi jodiem,
    Thanks for the suggestions for improving Twenty Eleven. From your notes it sounds like your suggesting a widget that’s called something like “Twenty Eleven Not Ephemera” right?

    You are correct that the “Recent Posts” widget will show all post types, including those in the Ephemera widget.



    Yes, something like that Or just using the same widget over and over again with options of which Post Types to show – whether they be Ephemera post types or regular.

    I’ve had to do a work around by creating a std Text Widget with manual links to my posts now, which is really annoying so if we could get this soon it would be great. Thanks



    Good idea Jodiem, hopefully your idea is taken into consideration, good luck. :)
