    Is it possible to link to the latest post in a category or as an alternative override the archive list to show only one post as it appears in the single template (i.e. no border around the post with the title in a header box)?

    I have tried using a template with a post list set to 1 but the formatting of this layout versus a single post layout vary.

    I have also tried the shortcode [post_list thumbs=”hide” numberposts=”1″ orderby=”date” order=”DESC”]
    but can’t get the full content to show

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Apologies but there is no feature in the theme for what you’re asking. Have you tried looking for s plugin? I be there’s a free plugin on wordpress.org that does something similar to what you’re wanting.

    Thanks for the quick reply (I couldn’t find a plugin that would do this either – I think there is a pretty good reason why)
    Will look at some other options for presenting posts, that will keep the client happy.

    Cheers

    Isn’t something like this what you’re looking for?

    [recent category="your-cat" show="1"]

    I think there are several other plugins if you search something like “recent posts shortcode”.
