How to Display Recent Posts from Category in WordPress
There are two ways by which you can show you latest posts – one is by showing them in the slider or through the first section of the homepage with a label Recent Posts. The second is by having a sidebar widget where a handful of latest posts can be displayed. But the problem that some bloggers face is that when you have a blog containing multiple categories of posts, if you show a handful of recent posts then some of the latest posts of specific categories may never get the chance to show up on the list. For example, let us consider that your sidebar widget shows five recent posts and you have ten categories and you are publishing one post for each category every day. So, naturally, five posts won’t be displayed, and your visitors are probably not going to know about them at all.
