Exclude or include pages in Post Loop Widget (PB)


First of all, wonderful theme (Vantage) and plugin. I’m first trying their possibilities but will most likely to buy the upgraded version :) looks worth it.

Now, the question. I’m trying to add a carousel slider on frontpage with some pages, and I wanted to exclude a few of those pages. I added this in “Additional”, but it’s not working:

Is it possible to exclude pages, and how? Or can I use the argument “include” to just show the pages I want (that’d be actually better)?

And how to modify the characteristics (height, etc.) of these – carousel slider… -?

Thank you!!

    Hi Layla

    It’s not possible to modify the characteristics of the slider right now. However you can use the last field, the Additional field in the widget to add various query arguments. To exclude a category insert


    Where 1 is the category ID you want to exclude. You can also comma separate to exclude several categories:

    Thanks for the answer.

    I was interested in excluding (or rather, including only some) pages -not posts or categories-, is it possible? (I have just seen that the query argument I posted here for you to check is not being shown…).

    Technically this is possible within the template but it doesn’t seem to be possible within the Post Loop (PB) widget as it stands. We are planning further functionality for the widget in the future.

    Thank you again.

    When or where is it possible?

    Kind regards.

    No problem.

    It’s possible within a page template if you built your own loop. At this stage I can’t say when the widget will be able to do this, other than it is planned for the future.

    Sorry to bump this, but how can I build my own loop?
    The functionality to retrieve content from a page to be used in another page is very important for me. I’d really need to use this function.

    Thanks again.

    Hey Layla. It’s unfortunately a bit beyond the time we have available here at the moment.

    Please remember to work in a child theme.
