    Hi, wondered if anyone could help with this. Am trying to show a list of the 3 latest posts, excluding category 6, however my $projects array is not working. ie The posts are displayed but are not limited to 3 and category 6 is not being excluded.


    ////* 45: Add [recent_projects] shortcode */
    function ff_recent_projects_list() {
    echo ‘<ul>';
    $projects = array( ‘numberposts’ => 3, ‘exclude’ => 6 );
    $recent_projects= wp_get_recent_posts( $projects );
    foreach( $recent_projects as $recent ){
    echo ‘<li><a href=”‘ . get_permalink($recent[“ID”]) . ‘” title=”Look ‘.$recent[“post_title”].'” >’ .   $recent[“post_title”].'</a> </li> ‘;
    echo ‘</ul>';
    return ob_get_clean();
    add_shortcode( ‘recent_projects’, ‘ff_recent_projects_list’ );

    Hi Susan,

    Best of luck with the unanswered posts! Unfortunately I haven’t had a response so any help would be appreciated.




    You can use the blog page template on the home page using the Reading Settings and exclude posts from any categories using the Genesis > Theme Settings > Blog Page Template.
