    Hi!

    I’m trying to set up the recent post widget as seen in the Moka demo (the columns with the featured image from the post) but the images doesn’t appear. The widget just show a list the post tittles. What am I doing wrong?

    I’m adding the widget to the Front Page Widget Area. The images are 1070 x 600.

    Thank you very much!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    “You can choose between 4, 8 and 12 posts per category and choose a specific category ID. To find out the ID of a category go to Posts → Categories and click on the category you want to use. In the URL you can now see the ID number of your category. The widget looks best, if you uses thumbnails for the post included in the widget.”

    I managed to find the ID of the category but… where do I write it? At the widget’s adjustments section the only thing I see is a dropdown menu where you can choose if you want to show the recent posts or not, and if yes… you can choose category, author, date…etc.

    Update:

    I tried adding the other widget for post (recent posts by category BY MOKA) and this one shows images.

    But… shouldn’t the other one show images too?

    Thank you!!!

    Thi there,

    I’m so sorry for this confusion. The widget you used before was just the default WordPress recent posts widget and this is not prepared to show any images. It’s just a simple default widget to show a list of latest posts (text links only). For the Moka front page you always need to use the Moka Recent Post widget, only this one is prepared like described in your text excerpt above.

    Best, Ellen
