Many thanks for a great template. I have configured most of it but run into difficulties trying to use specific Categories in my shortcodes. I can't make it work, neither in the Post/Posts (I would like to display different category feeds on the homepage) nor in the portfolio (I've tried work/works/recent_work and cat_name, category, categories - all the options). None of this works.

Lastly, the summaries don't appear, neither in the Posts nor in the Works. I've noticed that the spelling is different depending if I use work/works or work_box (summary / summaries-) - not sure if that's a typo on your demo site? Either way, I have tried all options and can't display them. I am pretty sure I am overlooking something basic here.

My site is running WP 3.5.1 with only 1 plugin - the Revolution Slider: http://www.runningwithus.com/

Test page trying to use both Posts categories and Works categories, both with summaries: http://www.runningwithus.com/test-homepage-by-category/
(I've put many options to try things out but none works - it still displays either nothing, or everything.)

Current code:

[recent_post cat="26" header="Test RECENT_POST" limit="2"]
[post cat="26" summary="" header="Test POST" limit="2"]
[posts cat="26" header="Test POSTS" limit="2"]
[posts cat_name="tips" header="Test cat_name" limit="2"]
[third_column][twitter header="Us on Twitter" user="nickandersonrun" limit="4"] [/third_column]

[work cat="36" summary="yes"]
[work cat_name="charities" summary="yes"]
[works cat="36" summaries="yes"]
[works cat_name="charities" summaries="yes"]

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry you had to wait. Could you please provide us with login/pass to your admin panel?

Wild guess is that elements aren't assigned to charity category (as it's not shown under photo)... anyway, we have to see your backend to be sure what's wrong.

I'm giving this ticket higher priority, from now on it will be handled quickly.

Hi Bartek, just checking whether you've been able to check my install and got any news? My client is getting a bit impatient as I thought we would have solved the issue this week.
Thanks to let me know, Julie
