    I am categorising a sample post and have used the category “Sci-Fi Romance”. It is appearing as “sci-fi-romance” using the “Latest News” widget. I assume that means the theme is picking up the label from the category’s slug. HOWEVER, on your demo site, I see mixed case; i.e. “Design” not “design”. I cannot have a mixed-case slug (everything gets converted to lower-case), so how did YOU manage to implement a mixed-case category description?

    Hi there,
    Sorry but I don’t even see the category name or description in the LATEST POSTS widget :
    https://drive.google.com/a/red-sky.pl/file/d/0B11RflJnvBkjd1UyeUZkNkNkaDQ/view?usp=drivesdk
    Can you please point us there using a screen ?
    Best Regards

    It’s the [SAAB] LATEST NEWS widget, not Latest Posts. You should see it included in the Blog Sidebar on the Appearance > Widgets screen. It’s the second one down after “Search” and before “Recent Comments”.

    Sorry, my mistake, so the widget name is Latest news, but you have set theLatest posts title for it;
    So it is the same widget as in my previous screen : https://drive.google.com/a/red-sky.pl/file/d/0B11RflJnvBkjd1UyeUZkNkNkaDQ/view
    Could you please explain where you can see the post category on this widget ?

    If you go to the Home page and look to the Sidebar, you’ll see the LATEST NEWS widget under “Search”, right? Notice the Red Flag. This is set on the “Post” page when first writing/updating the post. You have a choice of either Red, Blue or Green. I used Red. Notice the description on the Red Flag. It says “sfr”, which is the Category slug set for the post “Hello World”. The Category name is “Sci-Fi Romance” but the slug is “sfr”. That is what’s displayed on the Red Flag.

    Here’s the problem. When I look at TT’s “Saab” theme demo (https://teslathemes.com/live/?item=saab), it shows the category “name” in mixed case; i.e. “Design”, not “design”. Considering that all category slugs are lower-case and cannot be specified in mixed or upper-case (I know, ‘cos I’ve tried), how is it that your category name (e.g. “Design”) is mixed case, but mine (e.g. “sfr”) is all lower-case. If your demo theme isn’t picking up the category slug (which should, by all rights, be “design” all lower-case), where is it picking it up from?

    Sorry, that should be “Celebrity”, not “Design”.

    Aw, I have got the idea;
    So the link for the Saab demo was leading you to the HTML version of template;
    It should be fixed now, and it should lead you to the WP theme, where you can also the category slug instead of category name;
    We will launch a theme update with the fix where you will get the category name instead of category slug for Latest News widget
    Best Regards

    Oh, I see. I was wondering what was going on. Yes, getting the Category name instead of the (frankly unappetising) slug would be fantastic, Michael! Thanks so much. I await the update with alacrity. 🙂
