Hi guys, what is the best way through DMS if possible, to display different posts in seperate widgets/sections (each section it's own category) I was thinking through columnizer?

Hi,

 

Not sure what you mean by displaying posts in different widgets? Can you go into greater detail please.

yeah-what I want to achieve is basically 4 columns each showing latest posts, each from a different category. e.g. one would be latest news, another could be sports..etc

Hi Danny, I have played around with mini loops and special recent posts on my site. Special recent posts seems to be great however the text overlaps the thumbnails. Apparently this is a dms issue so I haven't been able to get much assistance with it. Would appreciate if you could have a quick look and see what you think? Thanks.

As far as I can tell the issue is actually a Special Recent Posts issue, you can resolve it by adding the following to your custom CSS:

 

img.srp-widget-thmb {
max-width: 100%;
}
 
Also, in future if you have a separate issue, can you create your own topic please.
