Hi ThemeDutch and Whitt Madden
Is there an interim solution for this issue as it is critical for my site that I can isolate individual post categories and only show selected categories in the post carousel rather than all of them. I looked at your site Whitt and from what i can see you have mananged to get the men’s ministry page to only show men’s posts. Did you find a solution or what please?
If we are reliant on the updated MikMag when will this be available please?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Gail, I am currently testing the NoTime theme and that is why you see the categories working now. The only way to get this to work in MikMag is to downgrade to WordPress 3.4.1 or wait until the update comes for MikMag and the 3.5 compatibility.22/03/2013 at 9:31 AM #11128
Hi Theme Dutch and Whitt Madden
Thanks Whitt for your response to my earlier query re this issue. I understand you have had to change theme in order to display only the category you require rather than all categories in the carousel.
This is not possible for me – my site is live and I am committed to using MikMag.
Theme Dutch is there any way i can hack the code to display ONLY the category I select in the carousel please. I am happy to go under the covers and change whatever is required as I cannot wait any longer for the new 3.5 version for this to be fixed.
Thanks and regards.

I am also having this exact same problem. On both my sliders on pages (using the shortcode) and also in my sidebars, it doesn’t seem to matter that I specify a category — it just shows every category.
There seem to be a LOT of things the developers need to do for this next update. Is there any way to fix this now? I’m having a ton of problems with this theme and the response unfortunately is usually “We’ll fix that, in the future!” Argh… I would expect that this particular problem would have been reported often, early, by many.25/03/2013 at 3:19 PM #11189
Oh I forgot to mention, I’m using WordPress 3.4.2 (I also had to downgrade my WordPress for compatibility with this theme)25/03/2013 at 3:23 PM #11190
Just noticed this thread was started almost a year ago… I don’t think a fix is likely to come anytime soon.
I am really deeply regretting my purchase of this theme and I’m stuck now, with not enough time to start another (which I’ll have to do anyway). I shudder to think how much time and money/opportunity this theme is costing me before I’m finished with it.25/03/2013 at 4:11 PM #11191
I also asked this question over on another thread where I was having a different problem in the hope i could get both questions answered at the same time. Here’s Kevin’s response on the other thread:
“I’m afraid that code-based support requests exceed what we can offer as free support. We’ve also been doing quite some recoding on the mikmag theme as well as its framework so getting back to that exact problem would be rather difficult at this point.”
So that response now begs another question from me…
If i pay for support will you provide me with the code I need to hack this myself – or not – as clearly there would be no point in paying for support if I am going to get the same answer – no you cannot help me and I should simply to wait for the update.
If on the other hand paying for one quarter of support is likely to elicit support to enable me to get this fixed quickly, I would gladly pay it.
Last comment from me today is of course – when is the update coming please?

I understand paying for premium support for specialized things beyond the theme’s advertising features, but they’re selling a badly broken product, and charging us to fix it so it works properly? That doesn’t sound like good business.
I’ve seen no ETA yet for an update, and MikMag is still not compatible with WordPress 3.5 yet. I’m getting the feeling we’re on a sinking ship.25/03/2013 at 10:34 PM #11204
This is the shortcode appearing on my home page, calling the thumbnail slider (and posts from the category “bars_slider”):
[thumbnailslider category="bars_slider" number="24" background="#CCC" textcolor="#000" words="21"]
Is there a snippet of code that could be added here to EXCLUDE certain categories? Although this should be calling only posts from the bars_slider category, it’s displaying ALL categories. My sidebar also disregards the category distinction and simply shows everything.
Does anyone know? Thank you! (I’m using WordPress 3.4.2)26/03/2013 at 5:55 PM #11205
That looks right, for reference, this is the one we’re using in the demo:
[thumbnailslider category="life-style" number="20" words="10"]
Pretty much the same, as you can see. I do believe the categories in there are case-sensitive that can sometimes happen to show all categories.
I’m afraid there’s no function to exclude categories.19/04/2013 at 9:53 PM #11404
I would remind you that on Themeforest your demo site thumbnail slider shortcode page says quite clearly, that posts from a particular category can be shown in the slider – which is one of the reasons I purchased the theme. Here is the exact wording :
You are here: Home \ Features \ Thumbnail Slider
Want a slider with the latest posts from a particular category with a thumbnail? This shortcode is right for you. In addition, you can limit the number of posts and the number of words. You can select the background and text color too!
Please can you confirm that this issue is being addressed in the forthcoming update as this functionality is central to my use of the theme.
Thanks and regards
