I'm trying to use the Genesis Featured Posts widget to display the most recent post from a specific category. Based on the options this should be possible. I have set the category of the post I want to display, set the Number of Posts to Show to '1' and Order By to "Date".
Based on these options and the ascending and descending sort order, I should be able to display either the first or last published post.
However, with these settings in place I get a random post every time I reload the page. It's as though the "Order By" was set to Random.
Any ideas why this out of the box widget isn't working?http://localhost
Well, I selected don't show the previous posts option and now that seems to have triggered it to display ascending or descending posts properly- no more random.
