    Hey Tom – I’m trying to use your WP Show Posts plugin to achieve this result (a product page catalog):

    I’ve managed to get close:

    … but having hard time adding inside padding (or margin) for the text within the columns without it also adding it to featured images, like this:

    (Want the images to span the column width, with zero padding-top too.

    The plugin doesn’t have the ability to set the color of the boxes, so no doubt I’m strewing up the custom CSS styling.

    Would love some ninja CSS help 🙂

    Thanks a ton!

    Hi there,

    Can you link us to the page in question?



    Leo, sure (I’m moved it to a test site):

    Hi there,

    Perhaps this will do it?:

    .wp-show-posts-image {
        margin: -20px -20px 20px;

    Tom, that did the trick! Thx 🙂


    Tom, two more questions:

    1.) I don’t see a way to CONTOL the order that the pages display from the shortcode.

    “Order by” has many options, but none (that I’ve tested) allows me to manually control the order.

    Was hoping to see an option for “Sort Order” but it’s not an option. And Order By ID doesn’t sort based on the ID list from the Post IDs field.

    2.) Is there a way to control (customize via formatted HTML) the copy within each box?

    Right now it’s just pulling the excerpt from Content > Excerpt Length; which is from the actual pages.

    Is there a way to customize the copy there?

    I thought perhaps using the custom page excepts field – but I don’t see that option under Screen Options.

    Any way to inject custom (formatted) HTML here?

    Perhaps the plugin wasn’t designed for my use case. I’m close though. It’s almost perfect. I’m happy to pay you for you to add these customizations to the plugin.

    Thx Tom!

    1. Unfortunately WordPress itself makes it hard to change the order of posts. Perhaps a plugin?:

    2. You could try using custom fields:


    Thx again, Tom.

    No problem 🙂
