How to Display Recent Posts From A Specific Category In WordPress
Karleen Curran

I have just started to use Recent Posts Extended widget but for some reason i can’t get it do display what i want and where i want it to go. I run a driving school and have built my website using WP & Divi Builder. I have 7 Recent Posts Extended. One for latest customer reviews to appear on home website page for all areas served, 3 for test passes and 3 for customer reviews for 3 areas I cover which have their own page. But when I go to select the area in “limit to category” for each Recent Posts Extended I expected to see 7 categories with check boxes and there are only 5 categories available for selection. I am no developer, so understanding CSS code to use is like reading Chinese. I have trawled the web and not found the answer to suit my needs.
