    Hello,

    I’ve ruled out any theme issues, but I’m still having a problem with getting my home page to display the content I want. I’ve tried two methods that have worked for me on other WordPress sites in the past:

    1. Add a custom field to the page “query_args” and set that to “cat=4″ which is the category ID I want to display on the homepage

    2. Added this function to  my home.php page:

    function cd_homepage_posts( $query ) {
    if ( is_home() && is_main_query() ) {
    set_query_var( ‘cat’, ‘4’ );
    }

    }

    add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘cd_homepage_posts’ );

    genesis();

    The result I get is that all categories are displayed, not just category 4. Is there something I’m missing?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
    Denise

    Hi Denise,

    Try this and see if it works for you.

    function cd_homepage_posts( $query ) {
    		if( $query->is_main_query() && $query->is_home() ) {
    		$query->set( 'cat', '4' );
    		}
     	}
    	add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'cd_homepage_posts' );

    Hope this helps

    Hi Stewart,

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately that didn’t work either, but we decided to use the Genesis Featured Widget Amplified for the time being.

    Thanks again!
